Four sheds were engulfed in flames in Portsmouth

Earlier this week, crews from across Portsmouth were called to the fire in Reginald Road, just before 11pm.

It is thought the blaze started after rags soaked in linseed oil were left in a plastic bag in one of the sheds.

No-one was hurt in the fire which happened on Monday, into the early hours of Tuesday.
