COWS had to be moved to safety after a fire broke out in a barn.

Firefighters were called to Chidswell Farm, on Chidswell Lane, Chidswell, at 12.10am this morning (Tuesday).

A large part of the barn, which was filled with straw, was destroyed by the blaze.

Cattle from a barn next door to the fire were quickly moved and were unharmed.

A crew from Ossett and two from Dewsbury attended.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is under way.
