Those halcyon days when pen and paper just worked!

Have your say

FIRE crews were called to an engine fire in a yacht.

Two crews from Southsea and another from Portchester were called to a fire in an engine compartment of a yacht in Camber Docks in Old Portsmouth at 2.28pm yesterday.

The fire had started due to an overheated cable.

The coastguard towed the boat in and put the fire out but firefighters carried out an inspection.
