People living in St Mabyn are told to stay clear of the site of a barn blaze - amid fears of toxic fumes.

More than thirty firefighters have been battling back the flames on Wadebridge Road.

It broke out at around eleven o'clock on Sunday night.

Teams called in back-up from Launceston, Liskeard, Delabole and Bodmin.

The barn measures 20m x 40m.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "The barn is totally involved in fire, crews are tackling the blaze using jets.

"Members of the public are advised to stay clear of the area due to carbonaceous and toxic fumes. Police are on scene."

The barn is now being allowed to burn while being monitored.
