Have your say

Staff at HMS Nelson were quick out the blocks this morning after smoke was spotted coming out of a car outside the naval base.

A fire crew from Southsea station were called just after 9.20am after a small fire was discovered in the car’s engine compartment.

But despite the crew racing to the scene, a member of staff quickly put the fire out using an extinguisher.

There was no-one in the car at the time.
