Around 500 hay bales were destroyed in the barn fire in Brean that's been raging since Wednesday afternoon (August 18).

The fire service confirmed this morning (Friday) that the fire is now out.

The barn near Burnham-on-Sea was storing around 500 bales of hay when it caught fire.

The fire service advised the public to keep doors and windows closed because of the huge smoke plume caused by the large fire.

The public were also asked to avoid Uphill beach because of the smoke.

By 4.15pm 12 fire engines and pumps from across Devon and Somerset were on the farm tackling the flames with water from a nearby watercourse.

Crews stayed on the farm throughout the night watching for hotspots flaring up.
