A baler caught fire in a field, sparking an alert.

The baler was on fire in a field in Piddletrenthide, and eight-and-a-half tons of bales were also alight.

Four appliances - two from Dorchester, one from Sturminster and one from Bridport - were sent to the scene.

Firefighters used off road vehicles, a water cannon and four hose reel jets to extinguish the blaze.
