A FIRE in a field has sent a huge pall of black smoke over a Hampshire motorway.

Fire crews were called to Chapel Lane, Easton, at 1pm after a blaze broke out on agricultural land near the M3.

A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) spokesman said the field was "well alight".

One fire appliance from Winchester has been sent to the scene along with two from Eastleigh fire station and one from HFRS headquarters in Eastleigh and other crews, some with off-road vehicles, from Fareham, Lyndhurst, Andover and Basingstoke.

Fire crews are likely to be at the scene for some time. There are no reports of any injuries.
