Fire breaks out in packing plant

The fire which broke out at vegetable packing plant in Atherstone, Warwickshire over the weekend, killing four fire fighters, has raised questions about the use of migrant workers in UK warehouses and how records of them are kept.
Wealmoor, which supplies fruit and vegetables to supermarkets, took over the packing plant in July. According to reports in The Daily Telegraph, the company admitted there was no sprinkler system.
