A hotel popular with Formula One teams, spectators and media personnel has burned down just days before the British Grand Prix.

A stone's throw from Silverstone, the double storey Premier Inn hotel - based at the popular Green Man pub - caught fire on Monday night and was attended by more than 50 firefighters.

One woman was hospitalised and two men have been arrested.

"There have been no similar fires reported in the area and there is no suggestion that there is any link to the British Grand Prix," said Northamptonshire West CID inspector Andy Glenn.
