A large fire that spread through heathland in Surrey has been brought under control.

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service said 35 hectares (86 acres) of land was ablaze at Frensham Common near Farnham.

The fire started at 1350 BST on Sunday and spread quickly because of the dry conditions, a service spokeswoman said.

The fire is now under control but crews are expected to be at the scene for the rest of the day, she added.
