A fire in a farm building has created a plume of smoke reportedly visible from up to 14 miles (23km) away.

Fire crews from Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire are trying to put out the blaze at the site in Ickford Road, Shabbington, near Aylesbury.

Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Fire Service warned residents to keep windows and doors closed and to stay away from the smoke.

Crews said the building contained "mixed waste".
