Large barn fire near Weymouth relief road

Firefighters have been tackling a large barn fire near the Weymouth relief road in Dorset.

They were called in the early hours to the farm at Bincombe, near Weymouth, after several 999 calls from drivers.

About 100 bales of hay being stored in the building were on fire but nobody was hurt.

Firefighters remained at the scene throughout Sunday while the fire was being allowed to burn out under control.

A spokeswoman for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said the fire had caused a lot of smoke to drift across the road prompting a number of calls from the public.
