Wind turbine bursts into flames in Cambridgeshire

A wind turbine has burst into flames in the Cambridgeshire Fens.

Two fire crews were sent to the blaze at Doddington, near March, which sent parts of the structure tumbling to the ground, but they could only wait for it to burn out.

The cause of the fire is still unknown but it comes after storms and lightning strikes.
