Fire crews are tackling a large fire involving agricultural buildings on Back Lane, Kingston Seymour, near Yatton, North Somerset. Four fire engines were called to the fire at the barn, which contained a large amount of hay and straw, as well as farm equipment.
Firefighters in breathing apparatus used unmanned monitor jets to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to other nearby buildings. As a precaution they also moved 60 calfs to safety from a second barn adjacent to the fire. The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental.
There are delays of up to 30 minutes on CrossCountry and First Great Western services between Plymouth and Birmingham. It is due to safety checks of the line being made at Yatton. It is not known when normal service will resume.
Frost Hill in Yatton is closed in both directions due to flooding between Mendip Road (Yatton) and A370 Bristol Road (Congresbury). Near the Cadbury Garden Centre.
