Basement fire damages Ilfracombe's Glen Tor hotel

Firefighters have tackled a fire at an unoccupied five-storey hotel in a north Devon holiday resort.

Crews were called to the Glen Tor Hotel in Ilfracombe just after 0900 BST.

Appliances from Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Barnstaple, including an aerial ladder, were used to fight the hotel fire.

No-one was injured, but Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said the basement and ground floor were damaged by the fire and smoke.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
