Fire at police training centre – update 09.00hrs

Valley Road, Portishead

Firefighters have spent the weekend damping down and checking for hotspots at the police firearms training centre in Portishead.

Crews remain on the scene today continuing with their work to ensure the fire is fully extinguished.

It is hoped that later this week specialist equipment will be brought in to lift the collapsed roof and allow firefighters to get underneath and tackle the small fires still burning.

Once the fire is fully extinguished and the building is deemed safe to enter, the investigation into the cause will begin.
