UPDATE | Residents allowed back into homes following fire in Forest Road

Residents living in Sandhurst Avenue and Forest Road are now able to return to their homes.

Those returning to their properties are asked to please keep all doors and windows closed.

Residents are also advised to not go into their gardens due to smoke and debris and concern about potentially hazardous materials.

Inspector Katie Eustace, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I want to thank everyone affected by this fire for their patience as we understand how scary and upsetting an incident like this can be for everyone involved, so I want to say thank you to everyone who has worked with us and stayed away throughout yesterday and today.

“Thank you for your support and understanding.

“Our colleagues at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service remain on scene.

“Officers will continue to be in the area so please do speak to them if you have any queries as you return to your homes.”

The incident remains under investigation.

Forest Road will remain shut at the junction of Sandhurst avenue and Nottingham Road while the investigation continues.

Oak Tree Leisure Centre, in Jubilee Way South, will close shortly as those affected are allowed back into their homes.

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 523 of 18 March 2023.
