One of Gloucester's oldest pubs has been badly damaged by fire overnight.

The New Inn pub on Northgate street was built in 1450 with a timber frame.

50 guests who were staying in the pub's accommodation had to be evacuated in the early hours of the morning.

10 fire engines tackled the fire which is believed to have started in the store room and caused damage to 20 per cent of the grade 1 listed building.

It is believed the blaze broke out at around 1am and one crew has stayed on the scene for the morning.

The city's Northgate and Southgate streets remain closed while investigators examine the pub and determine the cause of the fire.
