The body found in the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate, after a fire ripped through the premises earlier this month, is that of missing 41 year old Kitchen Porter Nigel Butterfield.

He was found on the fifth floor of the hotel in the staff quarters.

Whilst a investigation continues into the cause of the fire, police believe the blaze did start in Mr Butterfield's room.

The scene's now been released by police back to the hotel's owners, who're working on rebuilding the site.
