Motorists are advised to drive slowly through a West Sussex village as fire crews tackle a barn fire that has been burning for over 17 hours.

West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were called out at 2:46am this morning to deal with a barn fire near Foxbridge Drive, in Hunston, near Chichester.

Four fire appliances were sent to the scene to gain control of the situation and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service supplied a Manitou tractor to help deal with the blaze.

Relief crews are still in attendance and are continuing to damp down the fire.
