Fire crews spent nearly ten hours tackling a blaze in a large barn at Smalley.

The lengthy operation saw crews from Nottingham Road, Derby and Ilkeston fire stations sent to a property near Smalley crossroads at around 7.50pm on Wednesday, September 3.

The fire forced the closure of the A608 as crews doused a large hay store. They were there until 6.45am the next day.
