Hampshire Fire and Rescue have issued some pictures of a fire they attended last night. They want to warn people of the dangers of storing and using fireworks indoors.

Fireworks thrown at horse rider

Police at Lyndhurst are appealing for information after a pedestrian and a horse and rider had live fireworks thrown at them from people in a car.
