Good evening from Spotlight. and on BBC One we now join

:00:00.:00:00.

Tonight the fire which has devastated the heart of Exeter's

:00:00.:00:00.

Two of the city's oldest buhldings have been destroyed.

:00:00.:00:09.

More than a hundred firefighters have spent the day battling

:00:10.:00:12.

the flames after they spread from an art gallery to the famous

:00:13.:00:15.

Tremendously important buildings. A whole series of 16th centurx

:00:16.:00:31.

buildings that survived the Blitz. We don't have a lot that survived,

:00:32.:00:33.

but we had that, until todax. We'll be live in Exeter in just

:00:34.:00:35.

a moment as the efforts Also in the programme tonight -

:00:36.:00:38.

what future for Plymouth airport? A long awaited report says

:00:39.:00:42.

a nine million pound subsidx is needed for it to operate

:00:43.:00:45.

passenger services again. And the RNLI struggle

:00:46.:00:50.

in parts of the region Tonight a major fire contintes

:00:51.:00:53.

in the heart of Exeter - more than a hundred fire fighters

:00:54.:01:18.

have been trying to put out the blaze at The Royal Clardnce

:01:19.:01:21.

Hotel in Cathedral Green. The fire is believed to havd started

:01:22.:01:25.

at an art gallery which facds Exeter Cathedral but spread

:01:26.:01:28.

to the hotel throughout Guests have described

:01:29.:01:30.

being evacuated from the buhlding Hamish Marshall is at

:01:31.:01:34.

the scene this evening. Firefighters from Dorset have been

:01:35.:01:44.

called in to assist. I have spent the day watching one of

:01:45.:01:56.

the biggest firefighting opdrations in the history of the Devon and

:01:57.:01:59.

Somerset Fire and Rescue Service. It started before first light this

:02:00.:02:04.

morning and 13 hours later, it is still continuing as the flales

:02:05.:02:07.

continued to burn the buildhngs behind me. We will hear in ` moment

:02:08.:02:10.

of the historical significance of those buildings. Behind thel is the

:02:11.:02:15.

high street. Some properties there had been damaged, some businesses

:02:16.:02:19.

have been unable to open today. We will see what is happening there as

:02:20.:02:23.

well. But first, in a series of reports and reaction tonight, we

:02:24.:02:26.

look at the story of the dax and how this fire unfolded. Harriet Branch

:02:27.:02:31.

was one of the first people on the scene this morning. The landscape of

:02:32.:02:44.

the city changed for ever. This is one of Exeter's most iconic

:02:45.:02:50.

buildings. Nasty. Absolutelx nasty. I don't like seeing anything like

:02:51.:02:54.

this happening at all. It is devastating, absolutely dev`stating.

:02:55.:03:01.

It is a massive operation and I have seen the cord and in the fire

:03:02.:03:05.

officers are incredibly brave. They have been fighting all day `nd some

:03:06.:03:09.

of them are literally exhausted The main thing is they stay safd and you

:03:10.:03:12.

have the ambulance crews in support of them as well. And this is how it

:03:13.:03:15.

all started. The scene Exeter woke up to this

:03:16.:03:20.

morning, following a loud, sharp alarm just after 5am that echoed

:03:21.:03:25.

across cathedral green. More than 100 firefighters

:03:26.:03:27.

had been at the scene dealing with the blazd,

:03:28.:03:30.

whilst people were evacuated from My dad called up to say that we have

:03:31.:03:41.

got evacuated. Did not say why. I got changed and went downst`irs and

:03:42.:03:44.

it sounded like it was rainhng because of all the crackling. So I

:03:45.:03:51.

quickly opened the door and saw this huge smoke and ash coming from the

:03:52.:03:58.

building and then I saw the rate is orange flames. We didn't re`lise it

:03:59.:04:01.

was a real fire. We just thought it was an error in the system `nd we

:04:02.:04:05.

all rushed out and of coursd we immediately realised becausd as we

:04:06.:04:08.

came out of the hotel there was falling debris burning stuff coming

:04:09.:04:12.

down. I have lost my engagelent ring. And I have lost my new iPhone

:04:13.:04:18.

which I only got yesterday `nd an iPad with all of the photographs.

:04:19.:04:23.

That is the sad bit. Everybody got out of the hotel and it is just a

:04:24.:04:31.

very sad day for Exeter. It looked like the fire was contained, but

:04:32.:04:36.

that changed. A gust of air just after 10am cars the fire to spread

:04:37.:04:43.

across to the Royal Clarencd Hotel building. It is incredibly difficult

:04:44.:04:48.

for two reasons. The first hs the structural integrity in the second

:04:49.:04:54.

is the number of voids. We have a very old building that is thmber

:04:55.:04:57.

framed and it has a very high fire loading and it makes it verx

:04:58.:05:01.

difficult for the cruise. Elergency services have been here for hours

:05:02.:05:05.

and expect to be here for d`ys to come. Much of the high Stredt has

:05:06.:05:20.

been closed. It would normally be quite busy, the final Fridax of the

:05:21.:05:23.

half term, but instead the high street has been dominated bx fire

:05:24.:05:27.

appliances. Let's go and look at the situation there now with our

:05:28.:05:29.

correspondent Simon Hall. Yes, it is straight, eerily quiet

:05:30.:05:43.

for a Friday evening. Quite apart from the firefighters. Much of the

:05:44.:05:48.

area has been closed all dax and it has caused widespread disruption. As

:05:49.:05:50.

our correspondent reports. Everyone in the centre of Exeter

:05:51.:05:58.

seem to want a glimpse of what was happening as the flames to called

:05:59.:06:03.

the Royal Clarence Hotel. L`te this afternoon, you could hear of the

:06:04.:06:06.

structure of this landmark building begin to collapse inside. Wdll, the

:06:07.:06:11.

problem is we don't know we are working tomorrow or not, do we? It

:06:12.:06:15.

has been a terrible time for local cafes, shops and businesses close to

:06:16.:06:22.

this hotel. It is more the loss of customers, then going elsewhere

:06:23.:06:27.

than being disappointed with my staff. We also have stock that we

:06:28.:06:31.

have to move because we onlx deal with fresh produce. We Ashldy

:06:32.:06:33.

provide all the treatments for the Royal Clarence Hotel so we will not

:06:34.:06:38.

be having those guests attend are spot any more. I have been visiting

:06:39.:06:43.

the Royal Clarence Hotel since I was a child. My children have bden

:06:44.:06:48.

visiting, so it is really s`d. It has been a remarkable day in the

:06:49.:06:52.

is sealed off while the firdmen work is sealed off while the firdmen work

:06:53.:06:56.

on this blaze. Meanwhile, it just a short distance away, everyone is

:06:57.:07:01.

shopping as normal and even people are out in the streets enjoxing cups

:07:02.:07:05.

of copy and sandwiches. Thex released a range atmosphere here

:07:06.:07:09.

today. We came down so far `nd realised we could not go down any

:07:10.:07:12.

further and we have had to concentrate our shopping around the

:07:13.:07:17.

area. And even going into a mains sorted as shopping and that is

:07:18.:07:20.

closed because of the water. There is now what? There is no water

:07:21.:07:25.

because apparently the pressure is being taken out and saw the shop had

:07:26.:07:28.

to close at three B. So we `re going to go home. It is sad, really sad.

:07:29.:07:35.

The Clarence has been there forever. I double how many years it has been

:07:36.:07:41.

there. We are trying to havd a look at it but we can't see it.

:07:42.:07:44.

Shopkeepers told us they have struggled to keep up with the

:07:45.:07:47.

developments today. Some close their doors because they had no w`ter

:07:48.:07:51.

their best to ensure it is business their best to ensure it is business

:07:52.:07:53.

as usual, but it won't be e`sy. Joining me now is Devon and

:07:54.:08:03.

Somerset's chief fire officdr, Lee Howell. The first question hs how

:08:04.:08:06.

are you getting on tonight with trying to control the fire? Well,

:08:07.:08:11.

this is a very serious fire. We have four aerial platforms on each of the

:08:12.:08:16.

corners of this major buildhng and a series of buildings and what we re

:08:17.:08:19.

doing is we're making sure there is no further fire spreading to a

:08:20.:08:22.

decent buildings and we are making sure there is no further fire

:08:23.:08:24.

spreading to adjacent buildhngs and we're making good progress hs all we

:08:25.:08:27.

are pleased with the progress. Do you know how long it is going to be

:08:28.:08:30.

before you about got it unddr control? It is very difficult to

:08:31.:08:34.

tell. In fact, part of the problem we have had in the thing th`t

:08:35.:08:37.

particular fire is the nature of the construction. It is a very, very old

:08:38.:08:41.

building and with common roof voids, the fire has been able to spread an

:08:42.:08:45.

scene through different roof spaces. And so until and unless we `re able

:08:46.:08:51.

to fully determined that thd fire is out, we are going to make stre that

:08:52.:08:54.

we are doing everything we can to protect the heritage and also make

:08:55.:08:58.

sure there are is no further fire spread. And we are on the wdekend,

:08:59.:09:03.

coming up towards Christmas, a busy time. People want to know, will they

:09:04.:09:08.

here in Exeter tomorrow? We are here in Exeter tomorrow? We are

:09:09.:09:11.

doing absolutely busy we can to bring this under control as quickly

:09:12.:09:14.

as we can, but at the same time we also make sure that businesses can

:09:15.:09:19.

operate so we have already discussed the potential plan to reducd the

:09:20.:09:23.

level of disruption that we can do especially in this part of the city.

:09:24.:09:29.

What you by that? Produce the Gordon and if we can, we're going to see we

:09:30.:09:34.

can allow access on one sidd of the high Street. The buildings that are

:09:35.:09:36.

directly affected clearly whll be directly affected clearly whll be

:09:37.:09:39.

out of bounds and we will still be operating there, but wherevdr

:09:40.:09:41.

possible, we recognise the concerns possible, we recognise the concerns

:09:42.:09:44.

and we are trying to do everything we can to accommodate busindsses

:09:45.:09:47.

trading in Exeter tomorrow. One point we are being asked about

:09:48.:09:50.

commies. You happy fire unddr control this morning and thdn it

:09:51.:09:52.

flared up again. What happened there? It is a very completdd

:09:53.:09:58.

incident and this morning all of the visible flames had gone, but

:09:59.:10:03.

actually what had happened hf I left the incident this morning in the

:10:04.:10:05.

incident commander had said that actually we still need to m`intain

:10:06.:10:09.

our resources here until we are absolutely sure that this incident

:10:10.:10:11.

is under control and just as well that we did that and took that

:10:12.:10:15.

approach because actually it had started spreading to roof voids The

:10:16.:10:18.

standard of fire diction for buildings built centuries ago are

:10:19.:10:24.

nowhere near the same stand`rd now, so actually that was one of the

:10:25.:10:28.

reasons why the fire spread. Thank you for joining us here this

:10:29.:10:31.

evening. One interesting pohnt, I've been talking to police officers

:10:32.:10:35.

lapping staffing the cord and is here. They tell me normally when

:10:36.:10:38.

they have to keep people aw`y from their work, their offices, their

:10:39.:10:41.

businesses, they can get quhte grumpy, but not here today. Police

:10:42.:10:44.

officers tell me they have seen nothing but support, good-n`tured

:10:45.:10:48.

from people, bringing the copy to the people involved in this

was saying, it is an ancient building behind us at the agent

heart of the city. Let's find out just how much has been lost today.

:11:09.:11:12.

Historian Todd Gray is with me. How might have been lost? Its prominence

:11:13.:11:17.

gives it a distinction, but really you are rebuilding a mediev`l

:11:18.:11:21.

building and turning it into a hotel give it a distinction all across the

:11:22.:11:26.

country. It is devastating. All of the buildings around it are

:11:27.:11:30.

incredibly important. And how important is it the fire dodsn't

:11:31.:11:34.

spread any further? Well, what we have is an island of mediev`l

:11:35.:11:40.

buildings behind us. We losd to -- we lost 25% of the city durhng the

:11:41.:11:44.

Blitz and also through development in the 1960s and 1970s. This is the

:11:45.:11:48.

key to the ancient part of Dxeter. The worry is that it will spread to

:11:54.:11:57.

Exeter at its best, so to lose them would be a real shame. And they have

:11:58.:12:02.

an interesting history. The Clarence is a landmark building and hf you

essentially, you stayed herd. You essentially, you stayed herd. You

:12:07.:12:08.

took spotter. People who cant imagine where there because it was

:12:09.:12:14.

the way to be. It had an Egxptian room in the mid-19th centurx. It was

:12:15.:12:18.

like going off to Tutankhamtn was Maktoum. It is a wonderful building

:12:19.:12:21.

and to think that we have lost it today is that in. -- is terrible. It

:12:22.:12:29.

also had links with the Nazhs before the war? Yes, it was the pl`ce ready

:12:30.:12:35.

Fascists met in the 1930s and before that it was an abolitionist centre

:12:36.:12:39.

for the war of Devon. If yot were against slavery, that is whdre you

:12:40.:12:43.

went. So to have this gone hn just a day is just shocking. 20 very much

:12:44.:12:49.

for joining us this evening. As you can see, the firefighters are still

:12:50.:12:51.

on scene here tonight. They are going to be here right throtgh the

weekend as well. Earlier, some form was put on the adjoining buhldings

the BBC has learned. The draft report from the Ddpartment

into the viability of the ahrport, The BBC can also reveal that

campaigners fighting to re-open the airport would need ?9 mhllion

:14:19.:14:21.

still re-open the airport, despite the fact no public

money is available. Scott Bingham has this

exclusive report. Five years after it closed,

the future of Plymouth Airport is The question is,

:14:37.:14:38.

is it viable or not? Various studies have reached

:14:39.:14:44.

opposing views, so all parthes have been banking on a new Government

the at the language... their study at the moment,

but what they said was 'would not be viable without Government stpport

in the early years.' That is because we

said we would like to see rdgional air connectivity fund

support for developing break even in the early years,

:15:29.:15:30.

so for them to come back and say we don't see how it could be vhable

:15:31.:15:34.

without support in the earlx days, it just seems to me

:15:35.:15:38.

a strange kind of language. Fly Plymouth maintain

:15:39.:15:40.

they could reopen the airport without any subsidy,

:15:41.:15:42.

yet the plan they submitted to the Department for Transport

:15:43.:15:44.

would require ?4 million in Government loans at launch

and a further ?5 million to cover It looks to me and to anyond else,

you're asking for 9 million quid of You have to distinguish

uncertainty continues. The Department for

for Team GB to compete at the rather long-titled -

Fiji International Surfing Association's World Standup Paddle

:20:19.:20:20.

has been finding out, Alex Murray is passionate about the

:20:21.:20:36.

boards he makes. And his passion doesn't stop there. He knows just

how to get the best out of them He came second in the national paddle

been training for the past ten months or so. Mostly here at

:21:09.:21:13.

Polzeath and some days it h`s its day. Obviously, the conditions today

:21:14.:21:17.

are not brilliant but the great thing about paddle surfing hs that

:21:18.:21:21.

you can go in any conditions. But in Fiji, the words are that thd weights

:21:22.:21:27.

can be frighteningly big and this is the first time for Alex and his

:21:28.:21:32.

first trip to Fiji. Everybody has really wound me up about how scary

:21:33.:21:35.

it is going to be but I am just going to try to do my best `nd

:21:36.:21:39.

hopefully with the adrenaline of the other guys around me it will give me

:21:40.:21:44.

a bit more encouragement to take off on one of the biggest waves I have

:21:45.:21:49.

ever served in my life. Frol the age of 12, Alex always favoured surfing

over other water sport dischplines he tried, until you had it go at

stand-up paddle surfing. Thd beauty of the stand-up paddle board is that

:22:01.:22:04.

to go in for a very short sdssion and get as many waves as I want

:22:05.:22:08.

because I am per this out. Ht also gives me a lot more power when I'm

:22:09.:22:11.

doing my turns. The feeling is fantastic. It is like surfing but on

:22:12.:22:20.

another level to surfing. 200 athletes from 30 nations gather to

:22:21.:22:23.

compete in Fiji, which starts on the 12th of November.

:22:24.:22:30.

Before we go to the weather with Bee - let's head back to Exeter

:22:31.:22:33.

Fire fighters remain on the scene of the Clarence Hotel,

:22:34.:22:37.

almost 14 hours after first being called to the fire

:22:38.:22:42.

Tonight part of the city centre remains cordoned off.

:22:43.:22:45.

Let's go live to Hamish Marshall for the latest.

:22:46.:22:53.

The latest information I am told is there are 27 pumping appliances here

:22:54.:23:01.

in Exeter, trying to tackle this fire this evening. Just takd a few

:23:02.:23:05.

moments ago, I can still sed flames coming out from the Royal Clarence

:23:06.:23:08.

Hotel. It is a big job. And through the day, thousands of gallons of

:23:09.:23:12.

water had been used. And in fact, down at the river a special pump has

:23:13.:23:18.

been put into the water there to bring water from the river tp hoses

:23:19.:23:23.

through the city centre to help tackle this blaze and peopld living

:23:24.:23:27.

in Exeter are being asked to do what they can to use as little w`ter as

:23:28.:23:32.

possible because so much of the city's resources have been tsed on

:23:33.:23:36.

that today. I am told that firefighters will be here rhght

:23:37.:23:38.

throughout the weekend. Ple`se officers from across Devon `nd

:23:39.:23:41.

Cornwall have been drafted hn. They will be manning cordons as well but

:23:42.:23:46.

it is hoped part of the citx centre will be open for people to shop

:23:47.:23:50.

tomorrow. As for a cause, rdnovation work on the art gallery next door, I

:23:51.:23:54.

am told, is one possible catse. One other thing to read tonight, no one

:23:55.:23:58.

has been injured. OK, many thanks, Hamish.

:23:59.:23:59.

It is not looking too bad. H should be able to get out on my broom for

:24:00.:24:12.

Halloween. Pretty much the same as the next few days. We have had very

:24:13.:24:16.

grey skies. This sent from one of our weather watchers this morning

:24:17.:24:20.

and very little changes over the coming days. It will stay mhld this

:24:21.:24:23.

weekend. An awful lot of cloud about. On balance, more clotd than

:24:24.:24:27.

sunshine, and again we will see is Kali mist and fog. The reason for is

:24:28.:24:33.

we have got high-pressure anchored across the UK. There is no change

:24:34.:24:36.

over the coming days. A lot of cloud trapped underneath that high, so not

:24:37.:24:38.

much in the way of rainfall but much in the way of rainfall but

:24:39.:24:41.

certainly a good deal of cloud. Quite a bit of Lookout as wdll,

:24:42.:24:44.

particularly over the coming mornings. Halloween, it shotld be

:24:45.:24:48.

dry, a little bit more sunshine compared with the weekend and

:24:49.:24:51.

against is overnight mist and fog and you can see from the satellite

:24:52.:24:55.

picture just how much cloud we have had today. It has been breaking up

:24:56.:24:59.

in places, so I think there has been some bright spells but generally it

:25:00.:25:02.

is going to be quite cloudy as we had to tonight and that clotd will

:25:03.:25:06.

lower salt mist, he'll fog xet again, the odd spot of drizzle but I

:25:07.:25:10.

think most places will be dry. With all of that cloud, it will not be a

:25:11.:25:14.

cold night. We could get down into single figures in the countryside.

:25:15.:25:19.

For most, those of 10-11dC. A great start to the day tomorrow. Some

:25:20.:25:23.

drizzle. Most places dry. It will slowly brighten as we go through the

:25:24.:25:26.

day. We will see some sunshhne coming and going. The best bet of

:25:27.:25:31.

sunshine on high ground. Whdre you do get the brightness, it could well

:25:32.:25:36.

Celsius above what we would expect Celsius above what we would expect

:25:37.:25:39.

for the time of year. Height of around 15 Celsius. So I think as we

:25:40.:25:44.

head towards the Isles of Scilly, it will stay largely dry. Again, and of

:25:45.:25:49.

a lot of cloud but also somd bright spells into the afternoon. Here are

:25:50.:25:57.

the times of high water. In terms of surfing, not a great deal of waves.

:25:58.:26:02.

Slightly more on the north coast. Further south, one to two foot and

:26:03.:26:08.

clean. For our coastal waters, winds east to sell easterly, thred to

:26:09.:26:13.

four. Fairweather after any mist and fog and the visibility good. By

:26:14.:26:17.

Halloween itself, dry but cloudy. You can expect some sunshind through

:26:18.:26:20.

the afternoon. Quite eerie overnight, actually. Once again we

:26:21.:26:25.

will see some mist and fog so perfectly for the trick or treat is

:26:26.:26:28.

out there. Very quiet as we head to the coming days. A lot of cloud as

:26:29.:26:33.

I have mentioned. As we go through the weekend, we have some e`rly mist

:26:34.:26:38.

and fog tomorrow. The cloud will be big and it could give the odd spot

:26:39.:26:42.

of drizzle but for most of ht will be dry. Into the afternoon, we

:26:43.:26:46.

should see some decent spells of sunshine. Those temperatures doing

:26:47.:26:51.

well. At this time of year, we would expect- around 11-12dC. We will

:26:52.:26:55.

probably get the mid teens tomorrow. By Saturday night, if you'rd out and

:26:56.:26:58.

about coming to be dry. A lot of cloud so quite a mild night and that

:26:59.:27:01.

does mean Britain on Sunday, we will seize early mist and fog. Fhgure

:27:02.:27:07.

cloud on Sunday. So let brightness will stop but again, where xou do

:27:08.:27:11.

get some breaks, it is cert`inly not going to be cold and it looks like

:27:12.:27:15.

actually as we had into the side of next week things are staying

:27:16.:27:18.

settled. Super Halloween itself another dry day with some bright

:27:19.:27:22.

spells and staying mild. Back to you.

:27:23.:27:26.

The experiment indeed. That is just about it from us. I will be back

:27:27.:27:30.

with the late news including all of the latest from the fire on

:27:31.:27:35.

Cathedral Green in Exeter. Of course, that is at 10:30pm here on

:27:36.:27:40.

lovely evening and a good wdekend. lovely evening and a good wdekend.

:27:41.:27:42.

Take. Good night. It took us once to get through

:27:43.:27:54.

the novel Anna Karenina. It was used to help my friend

:27:55.:28:00.

with depression, and finishing as we went

:28:01.:28:03.

to sleep at night. tapping each letter through the wall

:28:04.:28:08.

that divided our cells as we served life sentences

:28:09.:28:13.

in solitary confinement. We promise to encourage

:28:14.:28:24.

others to dream big
