The flames also spread to a neighbouring portable building and the motor cruiser, but firefighters managed to get it under control.

They used breathing apparatus, a hose reel, a compressed air foam system and a thermal imaging camera to put out the fire.

They then spent time damping down the area before leaving the scene just after 5.30am.

The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental.
