Dozens of firefighters tackled the fire at a farm building in Oxfordshire.

At 7.40am Oxfordshire fire crews were called to reports of a farm building containing hop drying kilns was on fire, at New House Farm, Hanney Road,  Southmoor.

As the fire was so big, fire crews from Abingdon, Faringdon, Oxford and Wantage were sent to deal with it, along with experts in dealing with the hazardous materials involved.

The fire was quickly brought under control, so it didn't spread to adjacent buildings and a nearby diesel tank.

Crews think the fire was an accident.
