The owners of a furniture shop in Stockton that was destroyed by fire and is now being demolished, say they will re-build to store. Isaac Godwin and his son Michael have run Godwin's on Stockton's Norton Road since 1972.
The three story building was devastated by the fire which broke out on Tuesday night. The father and son say after the site is demolished, they will re-build the shop and continue the business. They are also reassuring customers that any orders which were placed will be honoured.
