FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at a workshop in Bournemouth this morning.

Emergency services were called to the premises in Southcote Road at 9.43am.

Four fire engines and three police cars attended and breathing apparatus were used to deal with the fire involving a single-storey building.

It is believed the fire started in an extractor fan and both the fan and a spray booth were damaged.

Police closed Southcote Road in both directions.
