Investigations are continuing into a suspicious fire which destroyed several buildings at Morpeth.

Around 60 firefighters were called to a seminary on Morpeth Road just after 10 o’clock on Friday night to find three derelict buildings up in flames.

It took crews around 4 hours to fully extinguish the fire, which also threatened the historic Closebourne House.

No-one was in the buildings when the fires broke out and no-one was injured.
