Shops reopen after tragedy at bakehouse

first_imgAndrew Jones Pies’ two shops have reopened and a new factory has been sourced following a tragic explosion at its factory on Good Friday, which left one man dead.The explosion happened at Andrew Jones Pies bakehouse in Old Leeds Road, Huddersfield, only minutes after the 5am shift had started, causing part of the roof to fall and start a fire.Thirty-seven-year-old baker David Cole was killed instantly and his colleague, 23-year-old Marcus Cartwright, was taken to hospital. The firm’s two shops in Marsh and Brighouse, which were closed following the incident, are both open again.”We have resumed limited production in the bakehouse behind our Brighouse shop, which accounts for about 12% of our normal turnover, and we’ve sourced a new factory in Lockwood, Huddersfield,” said commercial manager, Graham Easby. “We have equipment going in today – ovens, mincers and depositors – and we intend to have up to 75% of our previous production back on line within the next two to three weeks.”Easby said that most of the staff had come back to work and were helping clear the excess machinery from the new factory so it could be cleaned to meet food hygiene standards.The Old Leeds Road site currently has a prohibition order on it and is listed as an unsafe building. The investigation into the cause of the explosion is continuing.last_img read more
