PORTSMOUTH Historic Dockyard car park will be closed tonight and tomorrow morning after nearby scaffolding poles became loose.

High winds in the city led to Southsea Fire Station being called out to the scene at around 5.53pm.

The firefighters were able to make the scene safe using an aerial ladder platform but Wickham Street will remain closed for the rest of the evening.

The dockyard car park near the Victory Gate is closed this evening and is likely to remain closed until tomorrow morning.
