Crews from Havant, Portchester and Cosham went to Clanfield Sports And Community Centre in Endal Way after receiving a report of a blaze in a toilet block at 2.58pm.

The alert was triggered by a fire in a light fitting, which was put out using an extinguisher before crews arrived.

However, the centre is due to open late tomorrow while repairs are made.
