The cordon around the fire-ravaged Royal Clarence Hotel in Exeter has now been reduced, allowing a number of shops to reopen.
The High Street is now shut from House of Fraser to the Guildhall entrance. But it has allowed some businesses to reopen this lunchtime.
Despite the easing of the cordon, some shops remain closed.
Pedestrians can now access the whole of Gandy Street, and a new section of the lower end of the High Street.
As a result, the following businesses can now open: Urban Outfitters, White Co, Burton, Evans, Vision Express, Jigsaw, Anne Summers, Whittards, Shoe Zone, Claires, Prezzo, Phone Customise, Triumph, Millets, White Stuff and Halloween Show.
M&S and Tesco remain closed.
Aerial photos taken by ITV News has revealed the devastating trail of destruction left by the Exeter fire.
Crews are still on the scene as they try to extinguish the remaining pockets of fire.
Meanwhile only a skeleton of the historic Royal Clarence Hotel remains.
It's demolition is expected to begin tomorrow morning:
Despite the on-going work at the Royal Clarence Hotel Nikki and Fraser Burling-Hobbs were married today at the historic Guildhall close to the fire's location. They managed to get into the Guildhall via the rear entrance and firefighters made sure they were safe for a quick pic out the front.
It’s safe to say it’s a day they will remember for a long time!
