Another fire in Bootle occurred at Acorn Way off Hawthorne Road on Saturday 20th August 2017. This is the fourth major fire in Bootle in a 12/18 month period.
Clearly it is not acceptable that such fires occur especially in an area near to homes. It has now become apparent that breaches of regulations and permits have occurred in certain incidents. I will be therefore meeting with various agencies, including police, fire service, environment agency, Sefton council and health to discuss the issue and quite frankly to get some grip on the situation.
It is unacceptable that the health of people is put at risk due to sloppy monitoring.
