About 150 people evacuated from The Pods in Scunthorpe last night
ROUGHLY 150 people were evacuated from The Pods after the fire alarm was set off.
At 8.25pm tonight (Wednesday, January 23), fire crews from Scunthorpe were called to the leisure centre on Ashby Road.
Everyone inside was evacuated while firefighters established the cause for the alarm to have been activated.
It was discovered that a football had hit a beam detector in the sports hall, causing the alarm to sound.

This was not the first mass evacuation of the premises due to the alarm sounding - a memorable one happened on a bank holiday last year.
