Fire at police training centre - update 10.20hrs

Valley Road, Portishead

Firefighting operations continue at the police training centre building today.

The number of fire engines attending the scene has now been scaled back to one overnight.

However, there are still a number of hotspots burning under the area where the roof has collapsed, although these are fewer than yesterday.

Smoke levels in the area have been significantly reduced and although there is still some smoke, it is far less than in previous days.

Work to gain access to the area under the collapsed roof using cutting equipment will continue today.

This is an ongoing incident and the fire investigation will not begin until the fire is completely extinguished and it is deemed safe to enter the building.
