Fire in old Angel Hotel in Northampton was accidental

  • 2-23-2012

An inquiry found the fire at the former Angel hotel, in Bridge Street, on 1 January was probably caused during work on the roof.

Ian O'Donovan, from the county fire and rescue service, said: "The most likely cause was hot work to the roof."
