This is the moment Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service fought a huge blaze in Dawlish on Saturday night.

Crews from Dawlish and Teignmouth were called to a location near the golf club in the town at around 11pm – and had to take their fire engines ‘over the railway tracks’ to get to the isolated scene.

On arrival, they discovered a “very large” outbuilding that contained the golf club’s machinery and tools was alight.

Sadly, the building has been “completely destroyed” by the fire, crews say.
