An area of poly tunnels, spanning about 50 by 25m, was destroyed by the fire.

Crews used three water jets and two hose reels to dampen down the flames.

Fareham fire station posted the pictures on its Twitter page.

A Hampshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said crews sent in a stop message at 9.39pm.
