A hotel on the seafront at Eastbourne, Sussex, was evacuated after a fire broke out in its basement.

The nearby Pier Hotel was also evacuated.

Six people were treated for minor injuries and one was taken to hospital with breathing problems.

About 60 firefighters and 12 engines were sent to tackle the fire, which broke out on Friday morning.

“The building has been seriously damaged and will need to be examined by building experts before a decision is made about its future,” a Sussex fire service spokesman said.
