A SEVERE fire ripped through over 30 tonnes of straw and three farming vehicles at a barn in Kingswinford.

Four fire crews including officers from Brierley Hill and Dudley worked throughout the night battling the blaze at Ketley Road after receiving the call at around 8pm last night.

Two fire crews were still in attendance at 5.08am today (May 2) and a spokesperson for West Midlands Fire Service said they were making very good progress, police and the barn owner were also present.

Mechanical diggers were used to clear the debris from the barn and outer-cordons are in place.
