Claremont hotel site handed back

Date : 27 November 2019


The Claremont hotel site in Eastbourne has been handed back to building control and the hotel's security firm. 

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service returned to the site today (27 November 2019) to continue the fire investigation.

At around 13.50 crews were requested to return by the fire investigation team.

Water was used to damp down the entrance of the building.

It was identified that one of the chimney stacks looked unstable in the wind.

The area was cleared to ensure everyone's safety.

At around 16.15 the chimney stack and part of the rear wall then collapsed.

We handed over the site to building control and the hotel's security firm at 16.36.
