The blaze took four hours to dampen down and smoke could be seen from as far away as Rodborough Common.

Eyewitness James Castle said fire crews were forced to run several hundred yards of hose from the bridge by the lake towards the fire.

Woodchester Park is a 214.9-hectare site that is owned and managed by the National Trust.
