Date of alert:

Crime Ref:

Dorset Police

A milking shed on a farm near Weymouth caught fire at lunchtime today.

Firefighters had to wait to tackle the fire in Osmington because of live electrics on the shed roof.

The fire service asked Southern Electricity Board to isolate the electrics so that the crews could tackle the fire.

The village had a power cut as the live electrics were isolated but the fire service says that electricity should be restored soon.
