Dorset fire crews tackle Studland heath fire

Firefighters have tackled a fire at an area of Dorset heathland.

One hectare (2.5 acres) of gorse and heathland at Agglestone Heath, Studland, was destroyed by the fire on Tuesday afternoon.

Crews in two engines, the special Unimog 4x4, used for tough terrain, and a Land Rover attended.

The fire was extinguished after two hours but firefighters remained at the scene to damp down the area, a spokeswoman said.
