Firefighters were called to a main power line on fire near the A35 at Chideock.

The area was cordoned off and crews from Bridport and Charmouth had to wait for power company workers to turn off the supply to the high voltage line near Quarr Lane before they could tackle the blaze at about 7.30pm on February 19.

Households in the Bridport area suffered intermittent power failures during the evening.
