A POPULAR shopping centre in Portsmouth was evacuated earlier today.
Workers and visitors exited Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth earlier this morning as part of a planned drill.
The procedure was aimed at emulating a real evacuation, in the event of an incident.
Yvonne Clay, senior marketing manager at Gunwharf Quays, said: ‘As part of our regular health and safety training, we conducted a planned evacuation this morning.
‘This is now complete and the centre is open as usual.’
