A FIRE destroyed a lawnmower at Burnley Cricket Club this morning.

Groundsmen started up the sit-on mower at the Belvedere Road ground when it accidentally set alight at around 11 a.m. today.

Fire crews were called in to tackle the blaze which is believed to have started due to a fault on the machine.

Firefighters doused the flames with dry powder extinguisher but the grass cutter was left badly damaged in the fire.
