Laser survey could help rebuild Royal Clarence Hotel

A survey using a laser to map out a 3D image could be used to help reconstruct the fire-hit Royal Clarence Hotel in Exeter.

The hotel was destroyed last month after a fire ripped through the building which has its roots in Medieval times.

But construction consultants Excitech made a laser survey two years ago which could be used to make a model of the facade of the hotel for architects to work on.

The scan, which is being offered free by Excitech, has been welcomed by the hotel owners Andrew Brownsword Hotels.
