Whitby firefighters and a crew from Lythe were called to deal with the fire in a sheep hut with sheep and cattle inside in Mickleby at 7.05am yesterday.

A farmer had put out the flames using a hosepipe by the time the fire teams arrived but a lamb and a ewe did not survive.

The fire is believed to have been caused by a fault in a heat lamp.
