Firefighters called to guest house blaze

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a guest house to deal with a severe blaze this afternoon.

Crews from Bohemia Road, The Ridge and Bexhill stations were sent to the Sherwood Guest House in Grosvenor Crescent just after 3.30pm.

An aerial ladder appliance was also required as the flames took hold of the roof of the building which is on the main A259 Bexhill Road.

It is believed the property was evacuated but no further information has been released.
