AFTERMATH of devastating fire in Dewsbury that has destroyed dozens of businesses.

Extensive damage can be seen to the multiple industrial units after a fire ripped through the premises yesterday evening.

Mill Street East remains closed as investigations into the blaze on continue.

Two fire appliances remained at the scene throughout the day damping down the fireground which sent smoke billowing into the Kirklees skyline last night.

At its height, over 60 firefighters were tackling the blaze which started at around 5pm.

12 appliances from across West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue assisted in extinguishing the flames and bringing them under control.

WERE SORRY! โค๐Ÿค๐Ÿ–ค

We just wanted to take this opportunity to apologise to all of our regular customers if our usual standards havent been met over the past few weeks and to explain some of the hurdles were currently facing coming out of the pandemic.

When restrictions and lockdowns were first introduced last year our taxi industry was hit hard along with the hospitality trade which we work alongside. With no one allowed out our own essential drivers were left with a 75 percent drop in work. 

During this very uncertain time and along with other operators throughout the UK we lost a lot of our drivers who were left to seek work elsewhere after such a decrease in their takings along with a large amount of our office staff who during a period of furlough were also able to secure employment elsewhere. 

Then as the government announced our road out of lockdown and our local venues were finally allowed to open we have witnessed an unprecedented demand for journeys especially on evenings and weekends. This in turn with  our reduced driver numbers has led to significant delays for our customers which we whole heartedly apologise for. 

Weve started a successful recruitment campaign in bringing back established and new drivers to the trade and were working really hard behind the scenes to try and get things right for you guys, our bread and butter so to speak. 

We also have more operators working at busy times allowing more accurate wait times to be given with our aim to prioritise all of our loyal and regular customers who have supported us throughout. You have no idea how grateful we are to you for continually sticking by us. 

So please know that we are doing our best in putting things right to offer you guys our best possible service that youve come to expect from ourselves. 

We cant  thank you all enough for all your love, support and custom and can we say a massive, massive thank you to our drivers and office staff that have stuck by us throughout, your loyalty will never go unnoticed, sincerely from the management team at Abbey Swift Taxis.

A great shot this morning of the War Memorial at Crow Nest Park, been standing  there since 1924!

The monument lists the names of the local Men who gave their lives in World War 1.

The names include Dewsbury-born J. W. Ormsby and H. Waller who both received the Victoria Cross during World War 1.
