Shocking footage from blaze at Lincolnshire farm

Smoke could be seen for miles around

A massive fire in a farmer’s field saw 18 hectares of straw stubble go up in flames.

The fire broke out at a field in Nocton Fen Lane in Nocton at around 3.30pm yesterday afternoon.

Crews from Lincoln north, Lincoln south and Woodhall Spa tackled the blaze with hose reel jets and beaters, and the farmer helped with his machinery.
