FIREFIGHTERS were set to continue practising putting out fires at a disused building in Portsmouth today.

Crews from Cosham and Southsea have spent the week doing some practical training at Sun Court, in Sedgley Close, Somers Town.

They were due to be there from 10.30am to 3.30am. The building is due to be demolished so the site can be redeveloped by First Wessex.
