“Please avoid the area, and keep windows and doors closed if you can smell smoke,” said a fire service spokesperson.

One resident said: “The sirens started coming into the village between 6/6.30 this morning. Must be bad with the amount that have come. I hope everyone is safe. Sounds like more sirens are on the way.”

The Crown Inn was a public house until recently but planning permission was granted for a change of use to a restaurant in February 2021.
