We have lost everything after fire

PEOPLE whose livelihoods went up in flames in the huge fire at the Strachan and Henshaw building say they have been left in limbo.

Around 30 businesses used the site of the former engineering works, on the corner of Deep Pit Road and Foundry Lane, Speedwell, for storage or workshops.

Some were completely destroyed in the blaze on May 3 and all are now out of bounds, as the building has been declared unsafe. It is now due to be demolished and has been fenced off, with on-site security.

But the business owners based at the building still don’t have any answers to their questions: how the fire started, whether they will receive any compensation or even be able to access their premises to see if there is anything left to salvage.
