Says Davinder Padda who owns Olivers Pub situated opposite the factory, "We've seen bookings for our usually popular Sunday carvery completely dry up. I don't know whether to tell part time staff to stay at home, I don't know whether there is any point for the chef to cook food if it will go to waste."

The fire will also prove to be costly for the government with the final bill expected to cost over millions of pounds. Government officials state that cleaning up the mess alone cost over £800,000, the BBC reported.
