FIREFIGHTERS were called to the scene of a late-night blaze in the New Forest.

The fire broke out in a building on South Street at about 1am and pictures from the scene show smoke billowing into the road.

Crews from Beaulieu, Hythe, Hardley, Redbridge and St Mary's used hose reels, jets, and breathing apparatus to tackle the fire.

The blaze was extinguished at about 3.30am and it is not known if anyone was injured.
