Fire crews have put out two separate fires in fields in Dorset this afternoon.

Around 25 firefighters were called to a field near Littlemoor where around 5 hectares of corn was alight.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Just as they got that fire under control, 20 fire fighters were needed to tackle a field fire between Lulworth and Winfrith.

That blaze was put out just after 4 o'clock.  The cause of that fire is said to be accidental and due to someone carelessly discarding a cigarette.
