What Torquay does today Cornwall copies.

It seems the Torquay habit of burning down delerict hotels has spread to Cornwall.

This is from the BBC news site:-

A fire at a derelict hotel in Newquay is believed to have been an arson attack, Cornwall's fire service says.

Emergency crews were sent to the four-storey former Cedars Hotel in the Mount Wise area at about 16:30 GMT on Wednesday.

About 30 people were evacuated from neighbouring properties which were affected by smoke in what police declared a major incident.

Residents were later allowed to return home. No injuries were reported.

Newquay station manager Stuart Whitworth said: "It's a derelict property and there's no power to it, so we can be fairly confident this is arson."
