Scores of shoppers and staff were evacuated from a busy high street shopping centre this morning.
People flooded onto the pavement after a fire alarm sounded in Fareham Shopping Centre in West Street just after 10am.
The issue has since been resolved with people being allowed back inside the shopping centre at 10.45am.
Mike Taylor, shopping centre manager, said: ‘We carried out an evacuation drill as part of our annual requirements.
‘I can confirm everything is okay.’
