Barn Fire in Billericay

Three children have been arrested on suspicion of arson following a barn fire in Billericay.

Around 20 firefighters were called to a "huge plume of smoke" at the site on Outwood Common Road yesterday afternoon and found 100 tonnes of bail and straw alight.

A JCB and lorry were also caught in the fire.

Essex Police warned homes and businesses across much of the area to keep all windows and doors closed because of the smoke.

The boys, aged between 11 and 12, have been released on bail until May 28.
