FIRE teams were called to a farm in Minehead this afternoon (June 14) when an agricultural forager set alight.

Fire Control received numerous calls reporting an agricultural forager on fire on a farm at Elscombe Lane, Wootton Courtenay, at 3.50pm.

Two fire crews from Minehead were sent to investigate. On arrival the crews confirmed the forager was well alight and they had a compressed air foam jet in use.
