Cows perish in remote barn blaze in Staffordshire.

Two cows died in a fire which broke out at a barn in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue were called out to the barn in Beresford Lane, Hulme Lane, during the early hours of the morning.

The barn was well alight when they arrived. A third cow inside is thought to have escaped.

Fire crews are expected to remain at the remote site for much of Saturday damping down and dealing with hotspots.
