Fire breaks out in derelict pub

Firefighters are tackling a blaze that has broken out in a derelict three-storey pub in Warwick.

Crews were called to Coventry Road, just before 4.30pm, to reports that the building was completely alight.

Four fire engines and a specialist aerial ladder platform from Leamington Spa fire station were called in.

Firefighters are using large water jets, hose reel jets and an aerial ladder platform to pour water onto the fire in hard-to-access areas.

Due to the partial collapse of the building, crews are having to put the fire out from the outside.

They are expected to be at the scene of the fire through the night.
