FIREFIGHTERS had to put out a burning scooter which was found near the skate ramps at Leesland Park in Gosport yesterday.

Gosport Fire Station sent a crew to deal with the blaze about 8pm.

A crew member from the station said: ‘A scooter with a small engine had been set alight.

‘It took us approximately five minutes to extinguish it.’

He said no-one was around when firefighters arrived at the scene.
