Have your say

SIX horses have been killed after a blaze ripped through a stable block.

A fire broke out at the premises off Mayles Lane, Knowle, near Fareham, at about 5.30pm on Tuesday.

Two fire engines and a water carrier from Fareham joined a crew from Wickham in tackling the blaze, which lasted about 45 minutes.

The cause is currently unknown. Fareham firefighters last night said the owners were making arrangements regarding the death of the animals.
