Well, it may not warrant top international news status, but it is tragic, after a recent £50 million revamp!

He added that the fire was believed to have started in a toilet.

I've heard of explosive D, but not of any that started a fire.   :o

😣

What a shame! It may not be an International Story, but to the people of Nottingham it's comparable to Grand Central Terminal burning.

Will the Tories provide funding to rebuild it Eddie?

Glad no-one was hurt!😊

Sorry to hear this, Eddie. :(

 

Glad that you were not there, though, and also that no one there was hurt.
