"This infestation could only have happened because an animal has entered the building, so we would like to take this opportunity to remind the public that animals must not be brought into police buildings, apart from guide dogs.

"We are aware that the closure of Fratton Police Station could inconvenience the public and police staff and appreciate the flexibility they have demonstrated while this problem is treated."
