Rebuild plans for blaze-hit hotel
10 May 2012
Owners of a family run hotel in Cornwall that was destroyed by a fire say it will be rebuilt "bigger and better than ever before".
Flames engulfed the Falmouth Beach Hotel on 30 April, leaving only a few parts of its structure left standing. No-one was injured in the incident.
The official cause of the blaze has not been revealed, although investigators have said a tar heater being used to repair a hotel balcony could be linked to the incident.
Demolition workers are now set to take down what is left of the scorched remains.
A statement from the Evans family, owners of the hotel which opened in 1984, said they would like to thank everyone for their messages of support "at what has been a difficult time".
