Firefighters used 60,000 litres of water to tackle the blaze, flooding the silo.

This required the watercarrier appliance from Wilton which was in attendance and helped with the operation.

Work continued throughout the afternoon to ensure the fire was fully out and the silo was safe to leave with the owner.
