Temple Newsam's Home Farm to reopen after fire

A farm at a West Yorkshire tourist attraction will reopen to the public on Saturday after a fire killed 34 animals and birds.

Temple Newsam's Home Farm will open at 10:00 GMT after Wednesday's fire in the central Cow Byre and Bothy building.

Investigations continue into the cause of the fire and a safety zone is in place around the building.

Some animals have been moved into new areas of the farmyard to allow visitors to still see them.

Adam Ogilvie, executive member for leisure at Leeds City Council, said: "What happened at Home Farm this week was very sad and shocking but we are keen to get things back to normal."

There will be a temporary reduction in admission prices for visitors to Home Farm.
