Pigs and dogs had a lucky escape after two barns caught fire.

Six fire engines and 35 firefighters took almost four hours to tame the blaze on Whitewebbs Road, where two barns, one 90ft long, were on fire.

Flames spread to number of farm outbuildings and a flatbed lorry.

Station manager Steve West said: "When they arrived our firefighters were faced with two open-sided Dutch barns and a number of farm outbuildings which were well alight.

"Thankfully farm workers had managed to lead around 30 pigs and seven dogs to safety before we arrived. Our crews worked hard in hot and challenging conditions to get the fire under control."

Firefighters from Enfield, Finchley and Edmonton fire stations along with firefighters from Hertfordshire fire and rescue service attended.

Fire crews worked through the night to investigate the cause of the fire.
