Two teenagers have been questioned tonight on BBC1 at 10.30.
Two teenagers have been questioned by police following a fire which
destroyed a landmark building in Southend. It took 30 firefighters to
bring the flames under control, but bring the flames under control, but
they could not save the Victorian structure.
The dramatic end of the headquarters of the local yacht club, captured on
film as firefighters struggled in vain to save anything of thd
130`year`old building. They could not stop its wooden structure from
being engulfed. It had been the clubhouse of one of the olddst yacht
clubs in the world until just a few months ago.
It is total. It has completdly gone. It survived a fire in the
1970s, but unfortunately thd framework has gone. There is
effectively nothing left of the club whatsoever.
This was the clifftop buildhng just two days before the fire. All that
remains now is the brick chhmney. It had been holding to the yacht club
since the 18 hundredths and was a popular landmark.
As I walked along here earlher I saw it was still on fire.
It was a good club to be in. It is a sad way for it to go.
I think it is such a shame, because it is over 100 years old. Irony hope
they can rebuild it. I'm taken by surprise.
Firefighters were still at the scene when police stopped two teenagers.
They were arrested on suspicion of arson, and this evening werd
released on police bail. Thd yacht club moved out of the buildhng
several months ago after it was found to be subsiding. The clubhouse
was due to be dismantled, btt any was due to be dismantled, btt any
thoughts of saving it now lhe in ruins.

Experts are warning that thd mild, wet summer we've had is likdly to
hasten the end of the region's ash trees.
It's two years since the deadly fungus,
which causes ash dieback, w`s first found in the UK, in Norfolk.
Weather conditions this year are making it spread
and it could be several years before scientists develop a tree
It takes just a few seconds to find the tiny fungus that threatdns to
hope and to find a way `` this lady hope and to find a way `` this lady
hopes to find a way to comb`t the disease.
The fungus has continued its life`cycle growing on the ldaf
stalk. They can be blown up to the air to reach this year's le`ves
This tree looks healthy, but in a few years it could be dead. The
classic diamond shaped lesions are indications of the disease, and this
is the most dangerous time. This year, a mild summer and light winds
will have helped the diseasd. Each red dot marks a confirmed ottbreak.
Of the 304 in the wild nationally, more than half are in our rdgion.
It has progressively got worse and worse, and now the tree is dead
The first case was diagnosed at this small wood in Norfolk two ydars
ago. In my lifetime we will see `lmost
the total loss of ash trees in our woodlands. In the next few
centuries, ash trees will no doubt make a comeback.
Thousands of ash tree saplings have been planted locally to see which
variety is resistant and can survive. Scientists are also mapping
the DNA of an ash tree which can the DNA of an ash tree which can
fight back against the dieb`ck. There is an ash tree that is a good
candidate for some resistance. It is about identifying that resistance,
and it is difficult to see how long that will take.
Months? Years? I would say probably years.
The recovery will be measurdd in decades, perhaps centuries.
