West Quay was evacuated this morning, after a fire alarm set off.

Firefighters were quickly on the scene, and shoppers forced to leave the site, after a ‘dodgy’ fire alarm went off. Customers were left to wait in the cold, after yesterday’s snowfall, whilst the fire brigade got the the bottom of the cause.

One West Quay employee, @FredTongue, said on Twitter: “Full scale evac of west quay. Great start to the shift.”

West Quay fully reopened at 11.25am.

    And surely it’s not dodgy when the fire brigade have confirmed it was a fire in the car park?
