Portsea residents were up-in-arms at the news that Portsmouth's threatened Harbour Community '“ a hospital for men with social problems '“ may move into their area.
A councillor who represented Portsea was equally angry about the council’s handling of the matter.
Residents’ Association leader, J Gosling, was organising a protest meeting in a week’s time.
Talking to The News, he said: ‘Portsea is already overloaded with people with social problems.’
