Crews get to bottom of fire

Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS were alerted after a strong smell of burning was detected in the Lee-on-the-Solent area.

Crews arrived at Nottingham Place where a call was made before realising smoke was coming from the nearby former HMS Daedalus site.

Firefighters turned up and discovered workers were just burning a big pile of rubbish, so no further action was taken other than to check how long it would be going on for.

The incident happened at about 10.50am on Saturday.
