Businesses burnt to the ground directly opposite us
It was with great sadness and worry that we watched the events unfolding on Sunday night.
To see such old historical buildings go up in flames as well as businesses and jobs gone through the foolish behaviour of one person.
It was clear early on that our premises would be ok,but then we were left with the concern that we may not be able to get our vehicles out of the yard the following morning due to the many road closures in the area.
Thankfully early Monday morning Meadow Lane reopened to allow businesses to trade as normal and for locals to be able to go to work and make a living.
A few days later it is still very saddening to drive past the burnt out remains of so many businesses.
Local firms have made generous offers including Magenta Self Storage who have offered free storage to those affected.
