An explosion in a portable cabin at the Asda car park in Fulwood saw two fire engines attend.

The blast was caused by a fault with an industrial battery at 4.40pm and the one attendant was unharmed.

Watch manager at Preston Firestation, Mark Woodward, said: "It was a pretty small explosion and there was no fire when we got there. We made the area and the batteries safe but there was minimal damage inside the portable cabin."
