Fire crews battled through the night to tackle a huge fire at a fuel depot in Billingshurst.

Residents were forced to spend the night at their village hall and a 600m cordon has been set up because of fears over gas canisters on the site.

The A272 between the Billingshurst and Coolham crossroads remain closed and could do for the rest of the weekend.

Emergency services were called to Four Seasons Farm at Coneyhurst at just before 10pm last night and have been tackling the blaze all night.

An investigation is underway into the cause of the fire.

The fire was finally put out just after noon.
