Rochdale mill fire still burning

Firefighters will remain on the scene of a large derelict mill fire in Rochdale overnight.

The fire at the former Turner Industrial Products site in Rooley Moor Road is still burning almost 24 hours after it started but it is under control.

"The bulk of the fire has been extinguished but there are small parts of the building that are proving difficult for firefighters to access safely.

"This is because the roof has collapsed in some places and one gable end is in an unstable condition and dangerous."

– Station Manager Mark Turner, Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue
