A BLAZE at a North-East farm that destroyed around £200,000-worth of tractor tyres has been allowed to burn out under the supervision of firefighters.

The fire started at around lunchtime yesterday (Wednesday, July 9) in outbuildings at Little Gordon Farm, Lands Banks, near Cockfield, in County Durham.

At the height of the blaze seven fire appliances and 38 firefighters were at the scene and thick black smoke could be seen as far away at Teesside.

A crew remained onsite throughout the night to ensure the fire subsided safely and was able to leave this morning.

Firefighers will continue to visit the scene every two to three hours until they are satisfied it is safe to leave.
