THOUSANDS of people were forced to clear Port Solent after a false fire alarm.

Cosham firefighters were called to the site shortly after 9.15pm on Saturday.

It is thought smoke from a back-up generator that had started in one of the buildings was mistaken for a fire and the alarm was raised.

It resulted in people in restaurants, bars, shops and the cinema having to evacuate.
