Scarborough's listed beach huts damaged in fire

They survived the worst tidal surge in over half a century.

But now some of Scarborough's historic beach huts have been badly damaged by fire.

The Grade Two listed buildings were engulfed in flames yesterday (December 9). It's not yet known how the fire started.

It comes as the clean up continues following last week's destructive floods which could leave the seaside resort with a repair bill of up to three quarters of a million pounds.

There have been calls for the Government to help cover the cost of the clean up.

From Scarborough, Frazer Maude reports.
