Six fire engines were needed to tackle a barn fire in Bradford today.

Firefighters from Bradford, Fairweather Green, Idle, Shipley and Leeds stations were called to a farm on Haworth Road, Heaton, at about 2.50pm.

The blaze was on a mezzanine floor of the 30-metre by 20-metre barn, which was believed to house hay and straw.

A spokesman said half the barn was on fire.
