Fire crews have spent much of the night tackling a major barn blaze on a Doncaster farm.

Three appliances from Doncaster and Adwick stations were sent to Thorpe Lane, Thorpe-in-Balne, just after midnight and are still there this morning.

The barn contains more than 600 bales of hay and straw and a baling machine and horse box have also been destroyed.

The firefighters have prevented it from spreading to other barns and livestock has been saved.

The straw fire is now so deep-seated that it will be allowed to burn out and one crew is still at the scene this morning.

Because the fire is still burning it has not been possible to establish how it started.
