Demolition works have begun at a former hotel in Middlesbrough after a huge fire tore through the building on Thursday evening.

Detailed investigations to establish the cause of the blaze at the Marton Country Club are due to take place once the site has been made safe.

Fire brigade officials have already said though they believe it may have been started deliberately. Road closures due to safety concerns also remained in place around the area on Saturday 15 June.
