More than 30 firefighters tackled a barn fire which raged for nearly five hours near Biggin Hill airport yesterday (October 12).

London Fire Brigade were called to the blaze in Milking Lane in Keston just before 4pm.

They sent six fire engines from Addington, Biggin Hill, Bromley and Orpington stations to the scene.

A spokeswoman for the fire service said: "An entire double barn containing bales of hay was completely damaged by the fire.

"Fortunately there were no injuries."

The fire was under control by 8.30pm, but crews are likely to remain at the scene throughout today damping down remaining hot spots.
