The garden centre has re-assured customers via their Facebook page that: "although the fire was serious, it has not affected or damaged the food hall, or the Garden Centre stock. Of course the Garden Centre and restaurant remain closed due to the measures in place to fight Corvid-19, but the plants are being looked after and the rest of the stock is intact.

No-one was injured and staff at the pet shop based at the centre managed to get all of the animals out unharmed.
