A large house in the New Forest has been severely damaged in a fire.

The blaze broke out in the detached property in Hangersley Hill, Ringwood, just after 06:30 BST. The owners were not at home and no-one was injured.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said flames had spread through the entire building, but crews had surrounded the fire and brought it under control.

Huge plumes of black smoke could be seen rising into the air at the height of the fire from the nearby A31.
