A road has been reopened in Portsmouth city centre after a flood in a university building.

White Swan Road had been shut to traffic while staff from the city council and University of Portsmouth - which has a building adjoining the road - tried to fix the problem.

A university spokeswoman said the flood was in the St Michaels Building, but that no staff or students had to be evacuated as a result.

It is not yet known what caused the leak.

The road was reopened at about 3.45pm.

Hampshire Constabulary said it received a call just before 12pm but was not needed to attend.
