FIREFIGHTERS were called after a piece of children’s play equipment was set alight.

A spokesman from Southsea Fire Station said the fire happened about 11.30pm on Monday night near Little George Street in Buckland.

The spokesman said he believed the equipment, which was destroyed in the blaze, had been a swing.

‘We just used the hose reel to put it out,’ he said.
