Have your say

FOUR fire engines were sent to Portsmouth dockyard last night.

The call came at about 10.15pm after reports of a fire.

Three appliances from Southsea and two from Cosham went to investigate.

However, on arrival, it became clear there was no serious fire.

The alert had been caused by an overheated light.

The incident was left with electricians at the dockyard.
