Booker deliveries disrupted following Ocado warehouse fire evacuation

EVACUATION Homes have been cleared after a massive fire at an Ocado warehouse

"There are still pockets of fire", said a spokesman for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) said "four of its firefighters had been treated for slight smoke inhalation" as they battled to bring the inferno under control.

Walworth Industrial Estate still remains under lockdown and a no go area to the public as many businesses have been forced to remain closed as the fire spread to the second building.

Ocado has apologised to those affected by a major fire at its Hampshire warehouse after nearby homes were evacuated amid a blaze firefighters are still tackling.

It said that due to concerns over the presence of pressurised refrigerants at the site, the police conducted a limited evacuation of the immediate area on Wednesday evening.

"This is obviously a awful event and thankfully no one has been hurt, although some firefighters have been treated for smoke inhalation".

Trudeau denies report his office pressured attorney general to help SNC-Lavalin
SNC-Lavalin shares tumbled in October after prosecutors ruled out a negotiated settlement over past corruption charges. When Wilson-Raybould pushed back, anonymous sources informed the Globe and Mail , she was effectively pushed out.

"We apologise to all those affected by this incident and are very thankful to the people of Andover for their understanding and support during this hard period". Although under control, it caused a collapsed roof and damaged all the robots and stock inside, firefighters said.

One local tweeted during the blaze: "Just streets away - the noise, heat, smell and light pouring from the Ocado warehouse is frighteningly real". These are the times when we take our hats off to the firefighters (and other experts) who tackle such scenes.

The full financial impact of the inferno is not yet known, but Ocado has increased capacity at its three other main United Kingdom sites in a bid to avoid disruption for customers. "Thank you. Stay safe".

Ocado's shares, which fell 5.2 per cent on Wednesday when the company said the fire would hit sales growth, were down a further 9.1 per cent to 881.4 pence at 1135 GMT.

Ocado said the hi-tech robotic warehouse in Andover provided around 10% of its current capacity and its shutdown means there will be a "constraint on our ability to meet our growing customer demand".
