FIREFIGHTERS have dealt with a fire which involved 10 tonnes of hay bales that were alight next to a building.

An Evesham fire crew attended the scene in Ryden Lane, Pershore last night (September 18) at around 11.39pm.

Local residents may see smoke for another few hours, but the fire service has assured that there is nothing to be concerned about.

There's a relief crew from Pebworth now in attendance with two main jets being used.
