Six tonnes of poultry destroyed in Poole fire

Six tonnes of poultry have been destroyed when a fire engulfed a trailer in Dorset.

Crews were called to reports of a fire involving a lorry and trailer just off Mannings Heath Road in Poole just after 04:30 BST.

Firefighters extinguished the flames but not before they had engulfed the contents of the trailer's fridge unit.

Crews spent just over an hour at the scene making the area safe. The cause of the blaze is being investigated.
