Three outbuildings in Britain, including a stables, have been destroyed by fire without any harm coming to horses, but the horsepower didn’t fare so well.

The blaze destroyed a workshop, stable and barn at Oreton, near Cleobury Mortimer, in Shropshire, England, early on Friday.

Three horses had spent the night grazing outdoors, so were unharmed, but a Lotus Elise sports car, with a fibreglass body, was reportedly destroyed.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue received the call at 12.40am, sending firefighters from its Cleobury Mortimer and Ludbury stations.
