Oxton Fire

6 October 2016, 07:36


Eight fire engines and their crews are dealing with a huge fire in Nottinghamshire.

More than a-thousand tonnes of straw are alight at a farm on Epperstone Road near Oxton.

A fire officer has told Capital they're doing all they can but the fire is likely to go on for a while, so people living nearby need to keep their windows closed.

Oxton Bypass is closed both ways between Nottingham Road and Epperstone Road, diversions are in place via the B6386.
