Pleased to say that Hamlet Court Road is now fully accessible to cars and pedestrians and open for business after the big fire which has destroyed the iconic Jefferies Solicitors building.
Great job done by the emergency services and the facility providers to get things back to some kind of normality.
The damaged building has been fenced off and a temporary walk way created. Work has already begun to make safe the area inside the cordoned off area.
Let us hope that they can retain and restore the beautiful facade.
Latest News Update: Latest reports on the local news Evening Echo website is that two men are being held for questioning in connection with the fire. We shall watch with interest this latest development
