Weymouth Pavilion: Olympic Media Centre On Fire

A fire has taken hold of Weymouth Pavilion which houses the Olympic Media Centre.

It’s believed it began in a toilet in the building and quickly spread to other parts. All the media preparing to broadcast from the site have been evacuated, as have members of the public around the building.

The news team from The Westcountry Tonight report seeing firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entering the building.


BBC: “Fire said to have been started deliberately. Our entire live operation in Weymouth has ground to halt as cant get to kit.”
