"I realised there was a fire just before 7.30am and I was emailing all of the tenants."

A neighbour called the emergency services and Gloucestershire Fire and Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Services were both at the scene.

"A very impressive professional response from emergency services," said Mr White.

Nobody was injured and an investigation is being carried out by Gloucestershire Fire.

The cause of the fire remains unknown.

The park has previously been used as a prisoner war camp during the Second World War and then became housing for Polish refugees.
