DRAMATIC images of a massive fire that destroyed a barn and around 20 vehicles have been released by Taunton Fire Station.

What was originally termed a 'small fire' in Poundisford Road, near Pitminster, soon got out of control.

A total of six crews battled the flames, which could be seen from miles away, in the incident at 8.45pm on Monday (June 1).

The barn was completely destroyed.

The photos have been posted on Facebook by Taunton Fire Station.
