Cheshire nightclub destroyed in blaze

A popular Cheshire nightclub was destroyed by blaze for a second time.

More than 50 firefighters spent last night tackling a huge blaze at a famous bar and restaurant in Alderley Edge, Cheshire - and many remain there today.

Emergency services were called to Panacea night club at 22.30 GMT last night after reports of flames seen at the London Road venue, which is a popular hot spot for celebrities.

Nobody was injured in the conflagration, but local roads were closed until very early this morning as fire safety officers continued to inspect the site. Crews remain at the scene and are currently investigating the cause of the blaze with Cheshire Police, who are appealing for witnesses to the incident.
