Fire Engulfs Historic Osborne View Hotel in Lee on Solent

Fire crews from across Hampshire have been urgently dispatched to tackle a significant blaze that has engulfed the historic Osborne View Hotel in Lee on Solent.

The Osborne View, a distinguished Victorian-era establishment, stands proudly on the cliffside, boasting a rich history that dates back to its construction over four floors. Once a thriving hotel until its closure in 1971, the Osborne View holds a notable association with legendary football manager Sir Alf Ramsey, who was a regular patron during the 1960s.
