Firefighters from four towns and villages tackled a barn fire in Helston in the early hours of this morning.

Crews from Helston, Mullion and Falmouth were called to a barn near to the Tresprison Industrial Estate just after 2.40am. They received back up from a specialist fire appliance brought in from Penzance.

The 20 metre by six metre barn was said to be well alight, with crews tackling the blaze with jets and a hosereel.
