Harvester destroyed in farm fire

A FORAGE harvester was destroyed in a blaze at Membury last week.

Fire fighters from Axminster found the vehicle well alight in a field at Challenger Cross at around 9pm on Wednesday night.

They were joined by two crews from Chard to fight the blaze, using compressed air foam, but were unable to save the harvester which was 90 per cent damaged.
