Fire crews were called to a Cornish hotel this lunchtime after a fire broke out.

A crew from St Ives Fire Station was sent to Tregenna Castle at Carbis Bay at around 1pm, closely followed by back up from Hayle and Truro fire stations, with further support from Penzance.

A spokesperson for St Ives fire service said: "All pumps were sent to a fire at a local hotel. On arrival crews found a gas garden heater had been on fire and put out by a member of staff.
