FIREFIGHTERS from Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead have extinguished a blaze in a barn.

Four crews were called to the incident in Back Lane, Kingston Seymour, at about 1.45pm this afternoon (Thurs).

The barn contained a large amount of hay and straw as well as farm equipment.

As a precaution, farm staff moved 60 calves to safety from a second barn adjacent to the fire.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used jets to try to extinguish the flames and prevent them from spreading to other nearby buildings.
