The blaze started in Arkadia Too on Allendale Road in Wingerworth at around 3.30pm on Tuesday, July 13 due to an electrical fault.

Business owner Rowan Adlington who also runs the recently opened vegan cafe Figaro praised Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service for arriving quickly and dealing with the fire in ‘record time’ before it spread to the eatery or the Spar on the same road.

She confirmed that the hair salon will be closed for ‘a month or two’ as it now needs a complete refurbishment following the blaze which caused significant damage to the inside of the building.
