A massive fire broke out this morning at High Wycombe's ski slope. Eight fire engines were called to the scene at Wycombe Summit, Abbey Barn Lane.

The fire started in the kitchen. More than fifty Firemen were called throughout the day to battle the blaze.

A spokesman for Bucks Fire and Rescue service said "We do not believe anyone was injured, although it is a massive fire."

The flames were visible from a distance away and two nearby roads were closed.

Efforts to extinquish the flames were hampered by a shortage of available water as there were no fire hydrants close to the wooden structure.
