  3. Leather trunk damaged in SeaCity Museum fire

    A large leather trunk has been damaged in the fire at SeaCity Museum today.

    A spokesperson for Southampton City Council said the fire broke out at lunchtime in the “Southampton’s Titanic Story” exhibition.

    They said: "The building was evacuated safely and fire crews swiftly attended, ensuring the fire was extinguished rapidly.

    "Our exhibitions team have assessed the damage, and have concluded that none of the artefacts were affected. The only item that appears to have been damaged was a large leather trunk, which was not part of our maritime collection."

    The cause of the fire is still under investigation but the museum will be open again on Thursday 8 June.

  4. Bournemouth care home burglar sentenced

    A man who broke into a care home in the middle of the night has been jailed for three years.

    He set off an alarm, fitted in each residents room. They found a resident asleep in the room where the alarm was coming from, but the wardrobe doors were open and the light was on.

    When caught exiting another resident's room, he was wearing medical gloves and claimed he was there planting cameras in the rooms.

    He was then removed from the property by staff, and arrested on 9 February.

    Police Constable Chris Raspini, of Bournemouth CID, said: “It was not possible to establish whether anything was actually stolen but it is clear Milburn entered the premises with the intent to steal from these vulnerable people".

  15. Sandbanks hotels plan will have 'devastating impact'

    Campaigners say plans to redevelop three hotels on Dorset's Sandbanks peninsula will have a "devastating impact" on the area.

    FJB Hotels wants to replace two of the hotels with new ones, and replace the third at the entrance to Poole Harbour with four blocks of flats.

    Haven Hotel

    The Protect Sandbanks Group, set up to oppose the plans, called the flats a "10-storey, faceless" development.

    FJB says the flats are needed to fund the cost of the hotels.
