A FIRE investigation is underway this morning after a yacht in a Hampshire marina burst into flames.

Crews from Hythe, Beaulieu and Hardley fire stations battled the blaze aboard the 38ft boat in Hythe marina for just under two hours and half after being called out at about 5.37am.

But the fire was so intense the boat was completely destroyed.

No one was aboard and there were no injuries, Hampshire Fire and Rescue said.

A probe into the cause of the fire is now underway.
