Bude Drones captured the saddest of all photos of Elements, the lovely boutique hotel at Widemouth Bay, with its fab restaurant, which burned down last night. The devastation is almost total.
Fortunately, no one was hurt, due to the amazing caretaker and others, and fire crews from across Cornwall and Devon did an amazing job.
Earlier photos from fire crews show the hotel ablaze but the wreckage seen here (after so much new work and revamping, too) gives a fuller picture of the scene of devastation.
Our hearts go out to Jamie and his team. They must all be in shock today.
