Christchurch fire closes part of dual carriageway
More than 70 firefighters were called to tackle a heath fire alongside a dual carriageway near Bournemouth Airport.
The blaze forced the partial closure of the busy A338 Bournemouth Spur Road, near the Blackwater junction for Hurn and Christchurch.
By 18:00 BST, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue said the fire was largely under control but crews would have to remain, damping down hotspots.
Drivers were warned of travel delays of more than an hour.
