AN electrical fault is thought to be to blame for a blaze on a train at a Hampshire depot.

Residents described how thick black smoke could be seen and smelt from their houses on Campbell Road.
The engine compartment and diesel tank of one of the compartments was completely destroyed and the bodywork of the second carriage was damaged.
No one was injured.
