AN ABANDONED car has been destroyed by fire on a remote country road near Portsmouth.

Firefighters from Cosham, two wearing breathing equipment, spent 30 minutes tackling the blaze at 9.30pm on Thursday.

Crews from two fire engines put out the burning Mazda which was partially blocking the narrow road near the ford in Pigeon House Lane at the bottom of the north side of Portsdown Hill.
