A huge fire has broken out in the grounds of the Minley Manor estate near Yateley.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service were called out to the blaze at the listed country manor house off Minley Road at around 1030pm last night.

It is reported that they were alerted by a neighbour.

They found the disused 25 metre high water tower well alight.

Crews from Yateley, Hartley Wintney, Rushmoor, Basingstoke, Rushmoor, Fleet, Bordon and Camberley battled the flames for around 5 1/2 hours.

Firefighters tweeted that they worked hard through the night, with limited access to the fire.

The fire was extinguished by 3:50am but fire crews remained on the scene till after 11am today because of concerns about the structure's instability.

The extent of the damage is not yet known.

Investigators from Hampshire Fire and Rescue are returning to the scene later today.
