THE manager of a Carnforth hotel says it’s business as usual after the building was struck by lightning.

Alex Casson said there was “no major disruption” at the Longlands in Tewitfield after the bolt struck the hotel yesterday (Wednesday).

Mr Casson said there was a “big flash” and then the hotel’s telephone systems went down.

He said the phones should be back up and running later today but in the meantime callers to the hotel’s main number were being diverted to his mobile.
