Police have been called in to investigate a fire at a Cornish farm that destroyed a tractor and other vehicles.

Arson is suspected after the blaze took hold at Werrington, Launceston in the early hours of this morning.

A Fire & Rescue spokesman said they received a call saying that several vehicles were alight and both appliances from Launceston were mobilised just before 2am.

A further appliance from Callington was requested due to the scale of the fire, with crews facing several vehicles alight, including a tractor, in separate locations.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus were committed and the fires were extinguished using high pressure hosereels, main jets and a foam jet.

As arson was suspected, Devon & Cornwall Police were called in and a fire investigation involving Cornwall Fire & Rescue and police was due to take place this morning.
