“Road closures are in place, please avoid the area if you can.”

Eyewitness Jason Ewart, 45, said: “I was sitting in the garden and I could see the fire and smoke from the fire.

“I think it started around two hours ago so around 3pm as I could hear some of the fire engines going past the house so that alerted me to what was happening.

“And then after that, I started to be able to see the smoke from the building.

“And now two hours later I can still see the smoke coming up in the sky from the pub.

“The police service has cordoned off the middle of the town but there were a few people on the high street but, it was mainly just full of emergency services.

“I think it’s around 300 years old that building and apparently the pub owners were away at the moment and are now driving back down after someone alerted them to what was happening.”
