"Thorough search" to be carried out at fire-ravaged Knaphill pub

"Thorough search" to be carried out at fire-ravaged Knaphill pub

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 10:16am 22nd May 2019. (Updated at 10:17am 22nd May 2019)

Surrey Police say they are not ruling out that someone was inside a derelict Knaphill pub when it burnt down.

The investigation into the blaze at the Robin Hood pub is ongoing, with its cause currently being treated as arson.

Officers said "every possible enquiry" had been made to establish whether anyone had not been accounted for since the fire.

They added that whilst they had no information to suggest this was the case, a thorough search of the building still needed to be carried out to ensure that no one was inside when the fire occurred.

Two boys, aged 12 and 13, have been released under investigation after being arrested on suspicion of arson in relation to the fire on 12 May.

In a statement Surrey Police said:

"The fire is being treated as arson and we are continuing to provide a 24-hour guard at the scene while our investigation continues.

"The building has not been deemed safe and needs to be pulled down.

"Whilst this is being done, the area will be searched to ensure that no one was inside when the fire occurred.

"We have carried out every possible enquiry to establish whether there is anyone who has not been accounted for since the fire.

"There is no information at this time to suggest that this is the case.

"However, this cannot be ruled out until a thorough search has been completed."

Enquiries remain ongoing and anyone with any information is asked to contact officers on 101, quoting crime reference number PR/45190049280.
