Pete Price has just said it's definitely NOT Cammell Lairds they've spoke to fire service apparently. Just been up - never seen so many people out at half 11 at night

Looked like it was just behind the petrol station, gas bottles were going, flames shot across New Chester Road for a while. Police cordoned of nearly quarter of a mile radius.

Are the Wiki servers around there or something, Wiki downed with me for a good half hour.
