Staff and shoppers gathered on the pavement while an assessment was carried out.


Damage was caused by a faulty mercury vapour lamp that was destroyed by the heat. There was extensive smoke damage to the first floor of the shop and the emergency services had to use a ventilation unit to clear the toxic fumes before anyone could enter. No injuries were reported.
