Explosion fear after shed fire
A 200 metre exclusion zone was set up in south Wiltshire after a shed storing flammable gas went up in flames.

About 50 homes were evacuated in Great Durnford, between Amesbury and Salisbury, amid fears the acetylene cylinders might explode.

Eight crews were called to the fire in the Jubilee Hall area at 1815 BST on Friday.

Firefighters were expected to remain at the site until Saturday evening, slowly cooling the area to make it safe.
