Just to add. I'm sure they'd need at least 5 fire engines if a toddler did get stuck in a cot though !!

Be prepared to have your post removed.

The Argus doesn't have a sense of humour when it comes to pointing out deficiencies in the emergency services.

Hope the freeholder was fully insured. He/she can then receive a very tidy lump sum, and then have the entire site rebuilt entirely as lucrative new housing (planning laws permit commercial to become residential now in many circumstances). Every cloud has a £$ silver lining.

Youhaven't actually addressed the point I raised. Vote me down all you like as it just proves that you're unable to form a proper response and you admit that I'm right.

Not really a 'major blaze' it is? And one member of the public has suffered 'minor burns'?? Was that from spilling their Waitrose coffee while watching?
