FIREFIGHTERS have remained on the scene following a massive barn fire in Swanage.

Dorset Fire and Rescue received more than a dozen calls to the blaze at a farm in Valley Road yesterday afternoon and have been fighting the fire overnight.

Two crews from Swanage were mobilised and a further two engines were requested because of the size of the fire.

Firefighters are currently

damping down a small quantity of hay and straw.

The cause of the damage is unknown, a service spokesman said.
