A large fire at Cottesmore Golf and Country Club in Pease Pottage has left behind a scene of complete devastation.

The fire which started late afternoon was attended to by 10 Fire Engines from West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service and supported by engines from Salfords station.

The fire reportedly began around 5pm this afternoon (Monday 11 June).

A video on social media shows huge flames and plumes of black smoke rising high into the sky.

Currently there are no reports of any injuries.

The initial call came into the fire service at 17:03.

The fire was located and covered the ground floor, first floor and roof space of a building used as a golf club and conference facility which was 60m by 40m in size.

The fire service had to use a number of jets, ladders and an aerial platform to manage and control the fire and they have confirmed that they would be in attendance throughout the night.

An investigation has now begun to determine the cause of the fire.
