North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service have tackled a fire in Bramham, near Leeds, caused by a battery-powered pedometer, used to prove the pigs are free range, which had been eaten by other pigs.

 

The fire crew said the blaze had been caused by ‘nature taking its course’ and copper from the pedometer battery reacting with dry hay and the pigpen’s contents.
