    Tragically, hundreds of pigeons have been killed in a fire that has swept through an allotment in South Shields, Tyne and Wear. About 40 firefighters and seven fire engines were sent to contain the fire at Holder House allotments, Whiteleas, near South Shields on Monday evening.

    Unfortunately their efforts were not able to prevent the fire’s destruction of 30 sheds, all their contents, and the death of about 1,000 pigeons.

    It is believed the fire, which affected an area of 328ft (100m) by 164ft (50m), was started accidentally.
