Unmaintained fire exits and no suitable fire risk assessment at a Bury St Edmunds furniture store have cost its managing company £7,000 in fines.

Direct Furniture Ltd was found in breach of the Fire Safety Order at its retail outlet on Station Hill and ordered to pay the fines immediately.

The case was brought about following a complaint about the fire safety arrangements at the property.

Fire officers investigating the concerns found the fire exits were not being maintained to an acceptable standard, and also discovered a lack of a suitable fire risk assessment for the property.

Mark was a fantastic contributor and expert consultant for a programme ACC recently produced on Fire Safety for Care Homes. Mark was a great pleasure to work with, always extremely supportive, forthcoming and responsive to all of our queries, demonstrating great expertise. He was able to adapt quickly to the challenges of filming, taking on the additional role of presenter with great patience, skill and professionalism. We look forward to the opportunity of working on further programmes together in the future.
