Trading estate goes up in flames


Fire has badly damaged a number of buildings at a small rural trading estate in Somerset.

Ten pumping appliances and a hydraulic platform went to the scene at the Parrett Works in Martock, just after midnight on Monday.

A fire and rescue service spokesman said foam was used to douse the flames, as diesel and oil were involved.

An inquiry is expected to begin later into the cause but anyone with information can contact investigators.
