Smoke bellowed into the air in a village near Gainsborough after several trailers caught fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue were called to an incident on Learoyd Road in Hemswell Cliff at 3.50am on Wednesday, April 21. Their colleagues from Humberside Fire & Rescue were also in attendance with a crew from Kirton in Lindsey.

Local residents were advised to keep windows closed and drivers to take care on the roads in the area due to poor visibility.
