Tractor wrecked by fire in field near Thornbury

A TRACTOR was destroyed when it caught fire in a field near Thornbury.

Three Avon Fire and Rescue Service crews, including one from Thornbury, arrived to find the tractor and a slurry pump "well alight" in a field off Old Gloucester Road, between Buckover and Knap, shortly before 8pm on Saturday.

They put out the blaze using foam and water.

An investigation afterwards found that the fire had started accidentally.
