Tate St Ives to re-open tomorrow morning

Three hundred visitors and staff were evacuated from an art gallery in Cornwall this afternoon because of a fire.

Crews attended the Tate Gallery in St Ives around lunchtime after the fire broke out in the kitchen.

Mark Osterfield, Executive Director of Tate St Ives, says the fire was contained in one part of the building so there was no damage to any of the artworks.

The gallery is to re-open tomorrow morning.
