“It is good to know that our fire precaution arrangements and infrastructure worked effectively, with our automatic fire doors functioning correctly to contain the damage at County Hall and to ensure the safety of all those who were in the building at the time.

“Since the fire was extinguished, we have worked well to ensure that any disruption to our services has been minimal and I can confirm that our services are now fully operational.
