WEATHER: Will the city see more thunderstorms this evening?

Have your say

SHOPPERS had a surprise when firefighters arrived at a supermarket.

The retained crew were automatically called because a fire alarm went off in the Waterlooville branch of Asda.

It happened on Sunday just before 11am.

Firefighters arrived at the store to find there had been a small fire in a light fitting. It began in the bakery but staff put the blaze out before the crew arrived. The shop stayed open.
