Onlookers captured footage showing flames rising from the sidewalk as firefighters prepared to tackle the blaze.

A nightclub has also been closed and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has cordoned off the fire.

The Telegraph reports, the England team is understood to have “performed an evacuation in their stride”.

But the incident marked another unfortunate episode in the process of building the Luc Kingdom.

Last week Jones lost captain Owen Farrell to a “bizarre” ankle injury while wing Jonny May was ruled out with a knee injury.

The Joe Marler bill was sent home after contracting Covid.

After returning a positive lateral flow test on Tuesday morning, he was immediately quarantined, it was reported.

And Courtney Lawes, who is due to replace Farrell as captain, is unable to train this week as he prepares to return from a concussion.

However, Jones often preaches the need to be “comfortable when uncomfortable” – and has found this to be a useful team-building exercise despite this inconvenience.

Covid threatens to cause further devastation for England as they continue training camp in Birghton.

All players and staff have undergone daily lateral flow testing – all have been negative.

England will not call up Marler’s replacement, with the rest of the team training until Friday before next weekend’s Six Nations opener against Scotland.
