A beach hut on Portland was destroyed by fire early today. Firefighters were called around 4am to the blaze near the Old Higher Lighthouse.
A Dorset Fire and Rescue spokesman said the hut and its contents were destroyed in the blaze, which was believed to have been started deliberately.
A Dorset beach hut has been revamped to help children with disabilities and their families.
The hut sits next to the old pier on Weymouth beach and is available to families who are part of the Dorset Carer Council.
The Council is made up of parents of children who have complex medical needs, behavioural issues and learning or physical difficulties.
The new hut was funded with help from Dorset County Council and Lloyds Community Funding - and was built by Plankbridge Hutmakers.
Richard Lee, who is the owner and co-founder of Plankbridge, said: "This has been a great bespoke project to work on, and we're delighted that yet another one of our huts will be used for such a unique and worthy cause."
Lesley Mellor, chair of Dorset Parent Carer Council, said: "The work that Richard from Plankbridge has done is marvellous. Not only is the hut fit for purpose, it looks beautiful and is a wonderful space for our members to use when visiting Weymouth beach."
Members can pre-book the hut through the Dorset Parent Carer Council for seven pound a day.
