Fire crews were called to deal with a blaze at a derelict farmhouse in Northumberland last night.

Crews were called out just after 8pm last night, to a fire at a farmhouse in Bebside in Blyth.

A spokesman for Northumberland Fire and Rescue said: “Three fire engines and an aerial ladder platform supplied by Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue were in attendance.

“Crews are still in attendance this morning along with a structural engineer and a fire investigation team to determine the cause.

“Concerns were raised about the safety of the building, however this has now been addressed.”
