Conniburrow Pavilion destroyed by fire

It's thought a fire, which has destroyed the Conniburrow Pavilion in Milton Keynes, was started on purpose.

Crews from Great Holm and Broughton were called to the incident on Conniburrow Boulevard at 4.15am.

Watch Manager Kevin Bird from Broughton Fire Station said: "When we arrived there was a well-developed fire in the roof that had taken hold and was quickly spreading. Within five minutes of our arrival the whole roof was on fire.

"We prevented the fire from spreading to the adjacent building and nearby trees, but the roof has gone and there is almost nothing left inside the ground floor."

Firefighters were at the scene for more than five hours.

Mr Bird said: "We managed to salvage some of the items inside the building, including some religious statues, but almost everything else has been damaged or destroyed.

"This will be devastating for the many local groups and organisations who use this building."
