Video: Huge fire engulfs field in West Aukland

Video has been shared of a huge fire engulfing a farmers field in West Aukland. Plumes of smoke could be seen as far away as Esh Village, as orange flames swept across a field in the village, not far from Bishop Auckland.

Other details are yet to be confirmed. The fire comes as the UK has recorded it's driest July since 1935.
