Straw from a barn that was hit by arsonists is still smouldering almost a week on.

The barn, on Mumbleys Lane, Thornbury, was set on fire last Friday evening.

25 tonnes of straw was destroyed in the blaze, thought to be started deliberately.

The fire was allowed to burn out overnight but firefighters returned to the barn the next day, and again yesterday (Thursday, January 18), to douse and turn over the smouldering straw.
