APEX BEDDING COMPANY, BURY.

"Very smokey fire of jute and coir in warehouse.
Many breathing sets in use.
Picture 5 above shows L.Fm. Unsworth being led from the mill, protesting that he feels O.K.
Picture 6, taken 3 seconds later shows him about to receive artificial respiration."
Although clearly at Apex Mill, the date of
this picture may be different from that given above, as there was more
than one incident there.
The Turntable Ladder nearest the camera is Leyland TD7 GLW421.
