Fire crews are expected to stay at the scene of a blaze near Exeter through much of Saturday.

The fire at Hill Barton Business Park in Clyst St Mary started on Friday afternoon in an agricultural shredder and spread to a woodpile. 

Seven appliances from around the area attended the incident, which caused large plumes of smoke. Nearby residents were advised to close their windows.

Crews created fire breaks, and fought the blaze with compressed air foam.
