Firefighters tackled a major blaze overnight at a large house in Poole.

A crew was called in the early hours to a garden fire in Bury Road, Branksome Park, but was confronted with a two-storey detached property completely ablaze.

Eight more fire crews had to be sent to the scene. It was eventually extinguished at 11:25 BST.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said there were no reported injuries.
