Hundreds of bales destroyed in Devon arson

Firefighters spent more than six hours tackling a large blaze in a barn set alight in an arson attack.

Seven fire crews from around Plymouth, Ivybridge and Plympton in Devon were called to New Barton Farm near Wembury just after midnight.

The fire destroyed 1,200 tonnes of grain, 900 bales of straw and 300 bales of hay.

A spokesman for Devon and Somerset Fire Service said the cause of the fire was deliberate.
