A fire which ripped through Brackley Town's clubhouse is thought to have been caused by electrics.

It broke out at around 3am this morning (June 20) and took three hours to bring under control.

More than 30 firefighters attended, with crews also brought in from Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

The club said it was a "traumatic time" but thanked well-wishers for their support.

"Obviously this is a very traumatic time for everyone at the club and all involved.

"We do believe that the football side of the business will be able to operate without too much upheaval as we hope the changing room block has not been affected.

"Also we believe that the new build has not been damaged and this could be up and running within six to eight weeks."
