THREE cars were destroyed in a fire in Whitchurch this afternoon.

Crews from Basingstoke and Andover fire stations were called to reports of a car on fire in a private car park near the Nisa store, in Micheldever Road, at around 1.35pm this afternoon.

However the fire quickly spread to two other cars which were parked nearby and firefighters took around an hour to extinguish the fire.

No-one was injured in the incident and the cause of the fire is not known at this stage.
