Hundreds of pigs killed in farm fire

At least 300 pigs have died in a fire at a farm on the outskirts of the village of Aalten in Gelderland.

The shed where the pigs were kept was totally destroyed in the blaze, but fire officials managed to stop it spreading to the main house and other outbuildings.

The cause of the fire is now being investigated.
