A MAN in his 20s has died following a fire at a farm in Worcestershire this morning.

When West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to Westfields Farm, Hanbury Road, Droitwich, Worcestershire, at 8.07am this morning nothing could be done to save the young man's life. 

Hereford & Worcester Fire & Rescue Service confirmed "crews discovered that the occupant of the property, a man in his 20s, had died."

When we spoke to the owner of the farm he said the situation was an 'awful tragedy' but did not wish to make any further comments.

“A fire investigation is currently taking place and there are no apparent suspicious circumstances,” said Group Commander George Marshall who was present at the scene.
