Police said there were reports of smoke at the hospital after an issue with a generator.

They said an alarm went off and Fire and Emergency responded but nothing caught fire.

A “routine maintenance” created “fumes with the appearance of smoke or steam”, the hospital said.

It said the fire service came as a precaution and had since left, and there was was no risk or disruption to patients or services.
