Three beach huts and a heath cliff face are burning in West Undercliff in Bournemouth.

The fire service was called at 3:51pm today, and arrived to a fire affecting 100 square metres of heath and beach huts.

Responding to the scenes were crews from Redhill Park, Springbourne, Westbourne, Christchurch, Poole, Wimborne, Ringwood and New Milton, together with the aerial appliance from Westbourne.

The fire is now out, and the fire service is reporting that it was started accidentally by a beachgoer who was cooking in a beach hut.

Fire crews are still on site dampening the cliff face.
