Fire damages Oxfam clothes warehouse
Scores of firefighters battled a blaze that left an Oxfam warehouse badly damaged yesterday.
Ten crews tackled the fire, which broke out at an industrial estate in Huddersfield. West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said the building "was showing signs of collapse".
The single-storey building in Beck Road is home to Oxfam Wastesaver, which sorts thousands of tonnes of donated clothes and textiles.
David McCullough, Oxfam's director of trading, said the fire had badly hit the operation. He said: "It's very sad, the loss of Wastesaver. We've lost a lot of stock including some online stock." The cause of the fire has not yet been established.
