A BLAZE that ripped through a range of barns in Wilburton has caused substantial damage to buildings and machinery.

Fire-fighters were called at 5.45am on Monday morning to reports of a fire at a farm just off the A1123 in Wilburton.

Around 35 fire-fighters, including six engines, tackled the blaze which destroyed at least half of the barns and a large amount of machinery. Despite the large-scale damage, there were no reports of injuries to either people or livestock at the scene and the fire was brought under control by around 8:30am.

The A1123 has been re-opened but motorists are warned that there may be tailbacks.
