FIREFIGHTERS were called to deal with a heater that had malfunctioned and melted.

A fire crew from Cosham was called to a children’s nursery in London Road, Hilsea yesterday at midday.

The heater had been warming a staff room in an lean-to building and had been left unattended when it overheated and melted.

No-one was hurt and firefighters swiftly made the scene safe.
