    Fire crews rushed to a tent fire close to a Milton Keynes hardware store earlier this afternoon.

    The fire happened close to the the Wickes store at Winterhill Retail Park in Milton Keynes at around 1.30pm.

    An eyewitness sent MKFM a video showing smoke visible from the yard at the store, with store alarms sounding.

    It is not known whether the tent was located inside or outside the Wickes store.
