Fire destroys Gotham Memorial Hall, library and GP surgery

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to the fire at the Rushcliffe village at around 11 am on Thursday 16 February.

The fire is mostly extinguished but we are likely to be on the scene for another few hours while we deal with hotspots and make the building safe.

An aerial ladder from Mansfield and crews from Arnold, Castle Donington, Highfields, London Road and West Bridgford were deployed.

There is fire damage to the whole of the building, which includes the library and GP surgery.
