Between eight and 10 bales of hay and more than an acre of stubble was destroyed in a fire in Chatteris yesterday afternoon (August 16).

Crews from March and Chatteris were called to the blaze along the A142 and took more than four hours to extinguish the fire, using beaters and a hose reel.

A spokesman said: “The cause of the fire was accidental.”
