FIREFIGHTERS were called to Royal Portbury Dock in the early hours of this morning (Tues).

Crews from Portishead, Pill and Avonmouth attended the scene at about 6.25am after reports that a jet washer had overheated.

On-site staff managed to extinguish the fire but crews removed it from the building it was housed in, to ensure the fire was fully out.
