While English pacer Stuart Broad executes his duty for his country England in the ongoing ENG vs NZ 2nd Test in Nottingham, there was a bad piece of news for the seamer. Tap & Run pub in East Midlands in England, which is co-owned by Stuart Broad, has been ravaged by fire.

The Tap & Run pub is run by The Cat & Wickets Pub Company, which was launched by Stuart Broad in 2016 with his former teammate Harry Gurney. The pub caught massive fire on Saturday night at 3.22 am (GMT). The fire has destroyed the roof and first floor or the pub and the building has badly damaged.

The station manager at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue, Jonathan Wilson, informed the mirror.co.uk that no one was injured during the accident as there was nobody inside the building at the time of the fire.

“There was not believed to be anybody inside the building and the fire was contained to the building itself. Crews from Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire together have been working to deal with it. We are going to concentrate on putting the fire out — we are having a structural engineer have a look at the building as well to see if it is structurally safe, then there will be an investigation,” Wilson told mirror.co.uk.
