The clean-up is underway after a suspected arson attack on a community centre in Birmingham.
Ulfah Arts And Media, based at Highgate Craft Centre in Highgate Square, was destroyed in the blaze in the early hours of Tuesday 20th May.
Police are investigating claims the fire could have been a racially-motivated attack, after the centre's CEO, Prashant Singh, received racist mail.
Ulfah Arts and Media spokeswoman Sarah Javid said:
“Over the last two months our CEO has been receiving hate mail which has been anti-Islamic,” she said. He also received a DVD which was full of race hate messages.
“Mr Singh has no idea why anyone would have a personal vendetta against him or the organisation. But the fire has destroyed everything. It’s destroyed equipment, but also all of our projects, some we have been working on for over a year.”
Fire at Cornets End Lane, Meriden is at A&A recycling Ltd not LaFarge Tarmac as previously reported. Smoke will be in the area for some time
West Midlands Fire Service originally tweeted that the blaze was at the granite quarry next door to the recycling plant, but last night corrected the earlier error, after quarry operator LaFarge Tarmac issued a statement.
LaFarge Tarmac has this afternoon confirmed the fire reported to be at its quarry near Meriden in Warwickshire, was in fact at a neighbouring recycling plant.
Earlier today West Midlands Fire Service tweeted its crews had been dealing with a blaze involving a large pile of wood chipping at the quarry itself.
In a statement, a spokeswoman form LaFarge said:
Media coverage today has incorrectly stated that there was a fire overnight in Lafarge Tarmac's Meriden quarry in Warwickshire. The fire was in fact at an adjacent site. Lafarge Tarmac's site is unaffected. We are assisting the fire service who pumped water from our site to tackle the fire.
West Midlands Fire Service Area Commander Simon Shilton has been tweeting pictures throughout the night, including shots of aerial mapping tools crews have to help them tackle large fires of this kind.
