Firefighters are tackling a big fire at a derelict mansion house in Somerset.

Emergency services were called to Sandhill Park, Bishops Lydeard, in the early hours of Tuesday.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said when crews arrived the three-storey building was "well alight".

The fire started on the first floor and spread to the remainder of the building including the roof space. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Six fire crews and three hydraulic platforms are being used to tackle the fire.

Water is being brought to the site from the neaby Cedar Falls health farm.
