This is in Portsmouth central and the accommodation is very good, it is not a hope, it is a fact that things will be ok,” he said.Lawrence could not say whether the new facility could become the permanent location of the station.“Until it is changed, we can just possibly look at it as first temporary and secondly permanent because we do not know,” he said.The sixteen fire officers, who were stationed at Portsmouth, were transferred to other stations earlier this week.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img 33 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!
