Have your say

FIRE CREWS put out a small, smouldering fire on the roof of a children’s centre.

Firefighters from Southsea believe the fire was started by the dropping of a cigarette butt on to the roof of Somerstown Children’s Centre, Omega Street, from the block of high rise flats above, yesterday afternoon.
