Hungry Horse fire: Bell Inn mourned by Yeovil councillors
Public figures have mourned the loss of The Bell Inn Hungry Horse pub in Yeovil which was devastated by fire on Sunday.
Yeovil Town Councillors Tristan Cobb and Jon Gleeson, who represent the Preston area of Yeovil, said the popular pub played a big part in the community.
Councillor Cobb said: "Jon and I would like to pass on our own sympathies to the staff and everyone involved in the running of the Bell Inn. However we can all at least take comfort in the fact that no one was injured or worse.
"As a father who lives locally, the Bell was a great place to take the children down to enjoy an afternoon or evening in a safe and friendly environment with great outdoor facilities in the summer months. The local community as well as the town will immediately feel the loss of the pub."

Councillor Gleeson added: "I would like to praise the work of Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue. The fact that fire crews were called as far as away as Bridgwater shows just how serious the blaze was and our fire services carried out their work with professionalism and precision.
"The Bell is not just a pub. It has been a community hub to residents living on the western side of Yeovil and beyond. I hope a full investigation will find the cause of the blaze before we can move forward."
