Friday 26th May 2017

We would like to reassure our customers that the unplanned evacuation on Friday 26th May 2017 was due to a small bin fire in an external area of the shopping centre which we believe may have been caused by a cigarette.

Centre staff responded quickly and extinguished the fire before members of the fire brigade arrived and confirmed it was safe. However, the centre’s fire safety equipment was activated causing the centre to evacuate.

We apologise for any distress or upset caused by this incident and we wish to reassure all of our customers that their safety and welfare is our priority.

We understand that recent events have resulted in a heightened sense of concern, but we would like to reiterate that today’s incident was due to a relatively minor fire and that the evacuation was a safety precaution to ensure our customers safety.
