Fire damages Lytham stately home stables

A stable block has been badly damaged in a fire which broke out in the grounds of a Lancashire stately home.

Four fire engines were sent to the building in the grounds of Lytham Hall at about 0430 BST on Tuesday.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said the ground and first floor of the building were well alight.

There were no horses inside the Georgian building at the time and no-one was injured in the blaze, a spokeswoman for the fire service said.
