    At first Southsea and Cosham crews were sent out but eventually eight fire appliances, including those from Havant, Fareham and Portchester were called in.

    Crew manager Simon Bone from Cosham fire station said: ‘It was well alight when we turned up. We don’t know how it started and fire investigators will be working on it. There are still some crews there making sure it doesn’t reignite.’
