Firefighters have released this sobering photo of a tractor and baler that had caught fire in a North Devon field.

Crews from Witheridge and South Molton were called to the field near Witheridge at 7.28pm on Friday evening (September 3).

On arrival, they found both pieces of machinery well alight.

Working with breathing apparatus and a hose reel jet, they tackled the fire, then used a thermal imaging camera to check for further hotspots.

The cause of the fire was deemed to be accidental.
