A FENCE was completely burnt out in a fire in Shipston.

Crews from Stratford and Alcester along with a crew from neighbouring Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service were called just after 1pm (today) to Green Lane after initial reports of a bin fire.

On arrival they found the blaze had spread to a nearby fence and was edging towards the house.

They used one hose reel and very quickly brought it under control in 11 minutes.
