Firefighters were called to a blaze in London Road yesterday afternoon which turned out to be smoke coming from a tiny cup.

A fire engine from Preston Circus was dispatched at about 1pm to reports of a fire in the open outside Aldi.

But when they got to the scene, all they found was the smoking vessel.

“A false alarm was recorded.”

    I walked by this chap the other day and he shouted that he isn’t being racist! I wonder if he is lonely, perhaps this smoking cup was a way to get some attention. It is awful to see anyone sitting on the pavement begging for money, it must feel worse to be in that position, whatever the reason is.
