FIREFIGHTERS were called out following a report of a car being on fire.

When a Gosport crew attended the incident in Village Road, Alverstoke, Gosport, at 6.15pm last night, they realised there was just some steam coming out of the engine compartment of the Vauxhall Astra instead.

Firefighters cooled it down before the owner of the vehicle walked back to his home in Alverstoke and arranged for it to be recovered.
