Shock and hor­ror as

Macclesfield Express - - BOSLEY MILL TRAGEDY -

HOW you re­acted to the dev­as­tat­ing news on our Face­book page: ●● ‘FOUR peo­ple are trapped fol­low­ing an ex­plo­sion a mill in Bosley. Po­lice are de­scrib­ing it as a ma­jor in­ci­dent,’ Fri­day, July 17 El­iz­a­beth Jen­nings: I drove through the thick smoke this morn­ing as I trav­elled from Buglaw­ton to Macc via Bosley lights. It was aw­ful and the emer­gency ve­hi­cles just kept go­ing past – re­ally up­set­ting to think about what was go­ing on. I hope ev­ery­one is okay x think­ing of ev­ery­one in­volved. Kerry Carousel: Think­ing about the fam­i­lies of all in­volved. Mags Long: Just ar­rived back home, yes on the Leek Road at 9.30am very chaotic with po­lice/ am­bu­lances and fire brigades, did think at the time could pos­si­bly be ‘the wood mill’.

My heart and prayers go out to all con­cerned. Emma McEvoy: I got stuck there. There are fire en­gines, lots of po­lice, he­li­copters. It looks very se­ri­ous. Tamsyn Buck­ley: Think­ing about all the fam­i­lies, this is so sad. Lorna Shep­herd­son: It’s great to see that £2,600 has been raised so far. Thank you Su­san­nah Jenk­in­son Lynn for tak­ing the time to set up a just giv­ing page.

I left Mac­cles­field 10 years ago but most of my fam­ily still live there so it’s still very close to my heart.

Please if you haven’t do­nated yet, even if it’s only £1, please do­nate and help ev­ery­one who has suf­fered and are still suf­fer­ing. ●● ‘PO­LICE name four peo­ple miss­ing af­ter blast de­stroyed mill,’ Sun­day, July 19 Tr­ish Lewis: Dev­as­tat­ing....! Thoughts with the miss­ing peo­ple and their fam­i­lies, hop­ing and pray­ing for a mir­a­cle... Ali Wil­liams: Bless their hearts, and the brave souls who are bat­tling to find them. X Jen­nie Mel­lor: In­com­pre­hen­si­ble. Think­ing of their fam­i­lies and friends as the search con­tin­ues. An­thony Cartwright: Such a bad shame only do­ing a day’s work RIP. Deb­bie Moore: Pray­ing for a mir­a­cle that they’ll be found alive soon. Their poor fam­i­lies must be go­ing through hell. Hugs to you all. ●● ‘SEARCHES for three miss­ing work­ers con­tin­u­ing af­ter body is found,’ Mon­day, July 20 Laura Marie Bar­ton: Con­gle­ton den­tal cen­tre, West Street, is a do­na­tion point for the Bosley work­ers col­lec­tion. Joanne Hol­land: So sad. Hope they find the oth­ers soon.

Thoughts are with their fam­i­lies and friends. Stephen Mar­ren: My thoughts are with the fam­ily at this sad time. Sue Dono­hue: Hor­rid time for fam­ily and friends. Stu­art Thomp­stone also got in touch to say: “As the pre­vi­ous own­ers of a busi­ness span­ning four gen­er­a­tions, I speak for the Thomp­stone fam­ily as a whole in of­fer­ing our prayers, thoughts and sup­port to those whose lives have been dev­as­tated by the re­cent events at the fac­tory in Bosley.

“As a fam­ily that em­ployed so many in­di­vid­u­als from lo­cal fam­i­lies over gen­er­a­tions, we share the over­whelm­ing sense of sad­ness of the close knit com­mu­nity we got to know so well.

“We would es­pe­cially like to of­fer our deep­est heart­felt sym­pa­thy and con­do­lences to the fam­i­lies who have lost loved ones in this tragic in­ci­dent.”
