A small fire broke out in the Lloyds TSB bank in Portswood this morning.
Alice James, a Southampton student, who was in Portswood earlier said:
They all sped past as I was walking down Portswood Road, and then when I got down there they were all blocking the road.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue told the Soton Tab that 2 fire engines attended the scene to deal with a small electrical fire and that no one was injured. Fortunately, this wasn’t a major incident.
One student who was outside the Mitre said:
There were loads of police cars and police tape everywhere, I thought there had been a bank robbery but it just turned out to be a fire.
