Update regarding the warehouse fire at Rockcliffe Industrial Estate - Thursday 18 November

Work is ongoing to keep a warehouse at Rockcliffe Industrial Estate under careful review following a fire which occurred last week (Monday 8 November).

The risk to the public and local residents remains very low but a controlled burn at the site is estimated to ‘smoke’ for the coming days and we would like to reassure residents that currently there is still no evidence of asbestos in the atmosphere.

The premises are now back in the hands of the Site Management team at North West Recycling.

All key partners (including Cumbria Fire and Rescue, Environment Agency and Public Health) continue to work together to actively monitor the site and we remain committed to keeping the public and local residents informed over the coming days. Fire crews will maintain a presence in the local area providing information and advice to local residents as an extra precautionary measure.
