Kent crews warn about asbestos after Isle of Grain fire

Firefighters warned the public to stay away from the site of a barn fire in Kent because the roof of the building may have contained asbestos.

About 20 firefighters fought the blaze at the farm in West Lane on the Isle of Grain at 22:20 BST on Wednesday.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service said the fire had been brought under control but crews remained at the scene.

A spokesman said at the height of the blaze, a large amount of hay was alight, as well as farm vehicles.

Members of the public were advised to stay away and keep their doors and windows closed.
