FIREFIGHTERS were called last night after the fire alarm went off at Portsmouth’s Queen Alexandra Hospital.

The incident at 7pm prompted Cosham fire station to send out a crew to the premises to investigate what was going on.

But when they arrived, they realised the fire alarm had been set off by mistake.

Firefighters confirmed no-one was evacuated from the hospital.
