Farm manager David Waites inspects the damage on a combine that caught fire while he was cutting the last of the wheat at the 222ha (550 acre) Moulsoe Builings Farm, Newport Pagnell, Bucks. Mr Waites managed to save most of the field by driving the combine out of the crop and onto a farm road, then ran down the field with a cultivator to stop any fire spreading. Contractors were called in to finish the wheat and cut 40.5ha (100 acres) of linseed.
