FIREFIGHTERS were sent to an overheated car last night.

Havant fire station sent one appliance to the vehicle in Asda, Havant.

It happened in the superstore’s car park at around 9.30pm.

Overheated oil had caused the car to emit smoke but the crew were not needed.

The crew returned back to the station 15 minutes later.
