Sheep die in fire on Yorkshire Coast
A lamb and a ewe were killed in a blaze on the Yorkshire Coast.
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.
