Fire still burns at Wiltshire Police firearms training centre
7:30am Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
POCKETS of fire are still burning at the new Wiltshire Police firearms training centre more than five days after the blaze began. The huge blaze which overran the Black Rock centre in Portishead near Bristol was spotted by a passing police officer early on Tuesday, and on Wednesday, an anarchist group claimed responsibility for the incident online.
A spokesman said: “Once the fire is fully extinguished and the building is deemed safe to enter, the investigation into the cause will begin.”
The £16m training centre is due to be used by the Avon and Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire police forces.
