UK egg producer loses over 100,000 birds in fire

Fire during upgrading sees two barns lost

One of the UK’s largest independent egg producers, Fridays, is thought to have lost 140,000 birds following a fire at its Knowbridge Farm in Cranbrook, Kent.

At the height of the blaze, 50 firefighters were called to the family-owned farm, which was undergoing an upgrade of its barns. Along with the birds, two barns were destroyed earlier in January; however, nobody was hurt in the blaze. The cause of the fire is unclear.
