The owner of a hotel which was destroyed by fire has decided to sell the site.

Flames ripped through the four-storey 120-bed Falmouth Beach Hotel, in Cornwall, on 30 April. No-one was injured in the blaze.

Owner Hazel Evans has decided to retire and sell the site, including the leisure facility the Beach Club, which will close on 7 March.

No official cause of the fire has yet been revealed.

The hotel, which looked over Gyllyngvase Beach, opened in 1984 and became part of the Best Western group in 2000.

The damaged sections of the hotel were demolished in the autumn.

On the hotel's website it said: "We would like to thank each and every club member and hotel guests for their loyalty over the years."

The club includes a swimming pool, gym and health suite.
