FIREFIGHTERS were called to a suspected arson in a supermarket toilet.

Two crews from Southsea fire station went to the Asda store in Fratton.

The call came in at 8.10pm yesterday, when the store reported there was a fire in the men’s toilets.

When firefighters arrived the blaze had been put out.

It is believed someone deliberately set fire to toilet paper in the cubicle, and the crew treated it as an arson attack.
