Have your say

DOZENS of firefighters fought to put out a blaze that raged through farm outbuildings.

An investigation is now underway into how the blaze at the farm in Soberton Heath, Droxford, began.

Four outbuildings were destroyed in the fire that began at 11.30pm last night.

It took three hours for crews from Droxford, Wickham, Hightown, Cosham, Bishops Waltham and Havant to put it out.

Investigators are back at the site this morning to continue their investigations. It is not yet known if the fire was started deliberately.

No one was injured and no residential buildings were affected.
