Makes you wonder if someone is being paid to do it ,so they have less chance of reopening.

I thought it a bit strange that all the smoke etc seemed to be coming from the back, whereas the front seemed untouched. Maybe the building company forgot to give he people a key, so they had to resort to lighting a fire against the back door.

I was reading in the Sunday Mercury today that The Birmingham Arms
was once the hub of birminghams boxing community and had a ring
in the back snug
