An intense fire in a furniture and carpet store has forced the emergency services to close a Bognor town centre road.

Barriers at the London Road junction with Lyon Street and Lyon Street West and Station Road are causing delays.

Police and firefighters remain outside the Keith Jay furniture store following last night’s fire. An investigation into the cause of the blaze, which began shortly after 6pm last night, will take place this morning.

Fifty firefighters from across West Sussex and Hampshire attended the incident.
