The fire service was called to The Dyke Golf Club, off Devil’s Dyke Road in Poynings, yesterday evening, April 22.

In an update today a fire service spokesman said: “We had one crew on site throughout the night keeping a watching brief to ensure the fire did not reignite. Relief fire engines were brought in shortly after 7am this morning to carry out a full reinspection of the site and continue to dampen down the area.

“The Technical Rescue Unit were also in attendance and deployed the service drone to provide crews with an aerial overview of the scene.

“A further reinspection is currently being carried out by the crew from Burgess Hill.”
