Crews from Worksop, Edwinstowe, Warsop, Retford, Mansfield and Ashfield were dealing with the blaze at its peak, working alongside Nottinghamshire Police and East Midlands Ambulance Service to prevent any spreading.

A water bowser and aerial platform were in use and the fire was finally extinguished at 10.10pm that evening.

Firefighters stayed for an extra hour dampening down the barn and warned residents there may still be some smoke in the area.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
