THIS was the scene at the workshops near Newport'sTredegar House today following a fire which devastated the buildings.

The workshops were gutted following the fire which crews were called to at around 9pm last night.

Fire officers have been at the workshops today investigating the cause of the fire.

General manager Jo Cartwright said the workshops affected included one which belonged to 'Busy Bees', a patchwork and quilting shop.

Another was a candle and mug shop while a third was used as a summer catering unit and so was empty at the time of the fire.

No-one was in the buildings at the time of the fire and no-one was injured.

The fire did not affect the main building or the grounds and Tredegar House, which is run by the National Trust, remained open for business today.

This happened when the fire service was on strike? I heard it took an hour for a fire tender to arrive?

It wont be the same down there now without the light effect from those workshops. often walk the dogs there early hours of the morning because its all lit up & gives off such a nice feeling. Was only taken photos of it last week. i think there was 22 lights around the front of those shops, maybe it had somethin To do with them. id hate to think it was Arson. Cant believe theyve gone. im going to miss them. its such a shame.
