A TRACTOR was totally destroyed in a blaze.

Burnham-on-Sea Fire Station has issued dramatic photos of the fire in a field in East Brent.

Firefighters were sent to the scene following a call from a member of the public shortly before 3.30pm yesterday (Friday).

The tractor was well alight when crews arrived and they extinguished the flames using breathing apparatus and a main jet.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the fire caused 100 per cent damage to the tractor and some damage to the attached mower.
