Have your say

FIRE engines went to a derelict pub this morning after reports of a fire.

Two trucks from Havant fire station went to The Cobden Arms in West Street, Havant, after a neighbour had said she could smell smoke.

The call came in at about 7am and fire engines were there very quickly as the former pub is a short walk from the fire station.

The crew undertook an extensive search outside the property, but found no fire.
