Firefighters battled a serious barn blaze in Sevenoaks Weald last night.

Crews were called to the Dutch barn in Hubbards Hill at around 10pm on Saturday after 100 tonnes of straw caught fire.

Livestock, including four cows, in an adjacent building had to be moved to safety.

Four fire crews tackled the blaze overnight, with two still on the scene on Sunday morning.

The fire was being allowed to burn out in controlled conditions.

A small amount of asbestos on the site was dealt with safely.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
