A&E Closed After a Fire at Grantham and District Hospital

The A&E Department at Grantham and District Hospital in Lincolnshire is still closed today after a small fire at the hospital yesterday evening.  Nobody was reported to be hurt in the fire but it appears to have had a significant impact on power supplies and telephony.  As a result, ambulances had to be diverted and a number of patients moved to other parts of the hospital.  There is very little information on the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust’s website, but the BBC reports that A&E will be closed until at least 1600 this afternoon.
