A medical practice in Chiddingfold has been destroyed in a fire.

Firefighters were called out to Chiddingfold Surgery along Ridgley Road, at around 3:45am on Monday morning (January 7).


Police say residents in houses nearby were evacuated.

The road is still shut in both directions from Coxcombe Lane to Woodside Road and we're told it is likely to stay closed "for several days". 

The cause  of the blaze is being investigated.
