A large blaze on a farm near Cardiff has been extinguished, say firefighters.

An outbuilding on the farm in Pentyrch had been well alight and black smoke was visible for miles around.

Eye witnesses said smoke had been drifting across the M4 near junction 32 at Coryton, Cardiff.

A spokesperson for South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said two crews were now damping down at the scene. There were no reports of any injuries.
