FIREFIGHTERS are still at the scene of a barn fire this morning in the south of the county.

Four crews were called from Hereford, Leominster, Peterchurch and Ewyas Harold at 11.13pm last night.

Approximately 800 ton of hay was well alight in the agricultural building in Stoney Street, near to the Comet Inn.

Investigators are going to the scene this morning to try and discover the cause of the fire.

A resident said that if anyone is travelling to Madley from Hereford and need to turn left onto Stoney Street, then be careful as one lane is blocked at the junction.
