A large chicken shed in Frilford was destroyed by a blaze which broke out in the early hours of this morning.

Fire crews were called to a farm in Kingston Road at 2.15am shortly after the fire started in the 30-metre-long shed.

Two fire engines from Abingdon and one from Rewley Road in Oxford were sent to the scene and spent about two hours tackling the flames.

Fire and rescue service group manager Julian Green said the cause of the blaze was being investigated but it was beleived to be accidental.

He said some chickens may have died in the fire.
