A spokesman for the firm said: “A fire was discovered in our plant room, which is a separate building to the main production area.

“Thankfully, the fire service responded promptly and managed to extinguish the fire quickly.

“No-one was injured, and investigations will now begin to establish the fire’s cause.

“Production will recommence tomorrow [Monday 24 August], but a percentage of products will need to be diverted to other locations.

“Supplies to customers should be unaffected.”
