Emergency services were called to deal with a fire on the Ebley bypass near Stroud last night.

The fire broke out on the bypass opposite the Ryeford Industrial Estate.

One fire engine was called to tackle the blaze at 5.30pm which was put out before the crew left the scene just after 6pm.

A spokesman for Gloucestershire County Council confirmed about 10 metres of hedgerow and fencing was damaged during the fire.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.
