Have your say

SPECIAL measures have been put in place to keep bonfires under control.

The Bonfire Assessment Team (Bat) will run from 4pm to 10pm tomorrow in Portsmouth.

It includes Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, community wardens and Colas.

Bat will respond to unauthorised bonfires and will decide on what action will be taken with the fire.
