Five pumps, two Land Rover vehicles and a water carrier from Cosham, Southsea, Liphook, Bordon, Petersfield and Havant attended the scene on farmland in Hambledon Road just after 6.30pm.

'˜The fire started due to burnout. It was not caused by arson,' a spokesperson said of the smouldering 200m by 75m fire.

The spokesperson added: '˜We were able to dampen it down and bring it under control fairly quickly.'
