Twenty sheep died in a fire at a lambing shed on a north Norfolk farm.

The ewes and lambs perished when fire broke out in the building at Green Farm, Barningham Green near Holt last week.

Three fire crews attended the blaze and Norfolk fire service spokesman Martin Barsby said the roof of the 50ft by 20ft building collapsed and the crews could not save the animals. But they managed to stop it spreading to other buildings on the site.

Investigations were being carried out into the cause but it was not thought to be suspicious.
