Roads have been closed in Swinton, as firefighters return to a farm which caught fire yesterday.

Wentworth Road in Kilnhurst is closed in both directions between the Piccadilly Road junction and the Highthorn Road junction as firefighters attempt to ‘damp down’ materials at Hollywell Farm.

This follows a straw fire at the farm, which broke out at around 4am yesterday morning.

A fire service spokesman said they expect the roads to remain closed for the next couple of hours and that investigations were continuing in to the fire.
