Have your say

THE engine compartment of a bin lorry caught fire.

One crew from Fareham was called to the Sita waste management site in Wallington.

The call came in at 2.40pm yesterday.

The fire was in the engine compartment, and was out by the time the fire crew got there.

But firefighters stayed for an hour to ensure it was safe and would not re-ignite.
