  • 1-10-2016

Several homes have been evacuated after a fire broke out in Bournemouth town centre.

The blaze started in Sharkeys Sports Bar on Old Christchurch Road at about 09:30 GMT. It later spread to flats above and also above The George Tapps pub.

About 40 firefighters attended the scene but no-one was injured. An investigation is under way.

The road was closed at Wootton Mount, Stafford Road and Lansdowne roundabout.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service described conditions as "challenging" and said damage to affected properties was "severe".

Eight people were evacuated during the blaze and have since been temporarily re-housed in bed and breakfast accommodation.
