The News understands that firefighters, paramedics and police were all called to The Blue Lagoon last night (February 17). It was a heavy presence involving multiple vehicles.

A Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary spokesman said the call was a false alarm after two Portsmouth City Council e-scooters were found in the water.

"There was a report of vehicle lights in the water, but when we attended it was establish it was two council e-scooters," he added.
