HAMPSHIRE Fire and Rescue Service will be testing heated blankets on Older People’s Day today.

Testing will be going on at Cosham Fire Station in Wayte Street from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

Appointments will be on a first come, first served basis.

Housebound residents can call (023) 9284 1762 to take part. Last year, 45 per cent of electric blankets tested failed testing in Portsmouth.
