Devastating Fire hits Bognor Regis Seafront

Published: 20 November 2016

Fire broke out at seafront properties on The Esplanade, Bognor Regis, in the early hours of Sunday morning. During severe winds of up to 80mph firefighters from West Sussex and Hampshire tackled the blaze as Storm Angus battered the Sussex coast.

The Mayor Pat Dillon, and all at Bognor Regis Town Council, would like to express their sincere thanks to West Sussex Fire and Rescue and everyone who helped during the terrible incident. Our thoughts continue to be with the residents and business owners affected by the lasting damage caused and the Town Council will work in partnership with other agencies in helping our community recover.

West Sussex Fire and Rescue are continuing with their investigations into the cause of the fire while The Esplanade, between West Street and Lennox Street remains closed, and have asked people to avoid the area if at all possible.

Anyone with information is asked to report it to Sussex Police online, or by calling 101, quoting Operation Haremoor.
