FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a suspected arson attack on a barn in Bawdrip in the early hours of Monday morning (February, 26).

Crews were called to Bawdrip Lane at 1am, with two pumps from Bridgwater and one from Taunton heading to the scene.
Upon arrival the crews found the barn to well alight and swiftly got to work to douse the flames.

The large barn, which measures 70m by 20m was severely damaged and crews had to remove approximately 50 tonnes of hay from the barn.

A spokesman for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue confirmed that the cause was believed to have been deliberate.
