Cordon remains after Friday’s massive fire in Speedwell

A multi-agency meeting has been taking place today in relation to the massive fire at an industrial unit in Foundry Lane in Speedwell on Friday night.

Police have been discussing the safety of the building and seeking further advice from other agencies about whether the cordon can be reduced.

In a statement they said: “We fully appreciate the cordon is causing disruption to local residents and businesses but public safety remains an absolute priority.”

A further update is due later today.

The blaze at the Strachan & Henshaw site is being treated as suspicious. At its height, 26 vehicles from Avon Fire & Rescue Service and more than 76 firefighters and officers were on scene to tackle the fire.

If you have any information for the investigators, call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5219097373.
