FIREFIGHTERS tackled a severe blaze on a farm in the Staffordshire Moorlands last night (Aug 8).

Fire broke out in large agricultural building at Small Brook Farm, which is close to Moorville Hall, on the A520 between Weston Coyney and Cellarhead .

A Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the building contained a multitude of vehicle fuels and agricultural equipment and was well alight on the arrival of crews from Longton, Cheadle and Hanley.

The A520 was closed to traffic between Malthouse Lane and Winterfield Lane but was re-opened overnight.
