Have your say

A FAMILY were evacuated after firefighters were called out to a false alarm.

The 20-minute call-out was triggered over fears a home in Magennis Close, Rowner, Gosport, was on fire.

But after crews from Gosport and Fareham arrived on Saturday night it turned out there was only steam coming from a boiler.

It happened at 11.02pm.

The family, including three children, were evacuated.
