Fire safety signs may not even be able to save the Bakelite Museum, after its owner was told that many changes were required in order for the site to meet modern regulations.

Patrick Cook, owner of the museum, has been in correspondence with Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service for more than two years regarding health and safety, but believes that 2012 could see the end of the premises, reports the Western Daily Press.

Mr Cook explained: "We've got 25 tons of Bakelite here which would all have to be moved – that’s three months' work with lorries.

"Maybe I’ve reached a need to expand anyway – but the whole fire safety thing has really made me question whether the museum should stay."

Recently, the Wirral Globe revealed that health and safety rules could stop a seaside resort from reopening a paddling pool due to costs.

The New Brighton site requires around £350,000 to fund safety inspections.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801263613-ADNFCR
