Fire destroys former hotel in Hockley Heath


Flames ripped through a derelict former hotel in Hockley Heath last night as a huge fire engulfed the building.

Fire crews from Stratford, Alcester, Soilhull, Coleshill and Billesley were sent the former Aylesbury House Hotel on Aylesbury Road after the service received a 999 call at 9.11pm.

The property was well alight by the time the fire service arrived and crews deployed water jets to extinguish the fire.

Two crews are still at the scene and are expected to remain throughout the day.
