"Tough" new safety measures to improve fire safety at a Shropshire industrial estate, which could include the adoption of fire safety signs, have been proposed at a public meeting.

Kingpin Tyres, on Wem Industrial Estate, has suffered three significant fires over the last two years, according to the Shropshire Star.

After the latest fire, in July this year, residents voiced their concerns when smoke blew over their homes.

The management of Kingpin Tyres were ordered to ensure they stored rubber in smaller piles and allowed more regular inspections after the incident.

Yesterday (Monday December 6th), residents were invited to Edinburgh House, in the council chamber, to hear what measures have been taken.

Pauline Dee, Shropshire councillor for Wem, told the newspaper: "The public will be very interested to hear what measures have been introduced at Kingpin Tyres to reduce the risk of fire and make the site safe and secure."

The newspaper also said that Shropshire Council had said experts examined the air quality after the fires and were happy that the smoke did not pose a serious health risk.

Recently, warning signs were installed on a common in Portsmouth to alert people to the risk of fire through lighting barbecues.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800275974-ADNFCR
