Midhurst fire crew called to manhole explosion

FIRE crews were called to Easebourne this morning (January 3) to deal with a ‘small explosion’.

The Midhurst crew was called out shortly after 6.15am opposite the garage on Lutener Road.

A small explosion came from an electrical manhole, but did not cause a fire.

The area was cordoned off and it took crews less than half an hour to make the scene safe.
