The blaze reportedly broke out at the clubhouse at Beaverbrook Golf Club in Surrey overnight.

"We received a call last night around 22.00pm to a report of a fire at Beaverbrook Golf Club, Reigate Road, Leatherhead," a spokesperson for Surry Fire and Rescue Service said.

'"Eight fire engines have been sent in total, alongside some specialist crews. The first arrived at the scene around 22.10pm.

"A fire had broken out, damaging the entirety of the building and its basement.

"Crews remain at the scene."

The Grade-II listed hotel is not thought to have been damaged.

Beaverbrook, which opened in 2016, is one of the most exclusive clubs in the whole of the UK.

The former home of press baron Lord Maxwell Beaverbrook, the hundreds of acres of land surrounding the mansion had fallen into disrepair.
