Bournemouth Beach Front On Fire

 Reports are coming through of a fire at Bournemouth Beach.

 

 

 

A member of the public who has asked not to be named said - It's only been going for about ten minutes but it's already turned to white smoke, so I guess it's almost out. When it started the smoke was a lot darker and you could occasionally see flames shooting up.
