Firefighters have managed to save a medieval Hampshire church after fire broke out.
Dozens of firefighters fought the flames at St Andrew's in Timsbury near Romsey early this morning.
The blaze ripped into the roof and bell tower but swift action saved around half of the roof of the Norman church.
The alarm was raised at about 7.30am and crews with six pumps took an hour to put out the flames.
The cause of the blaze was unclear and will be investigated. No one was hurt.
