Statement on the Holyhead Marina Workshop explosion

I am informed that the fire at the workshop was quickly contained to the one large building and there were no reported casualties. I pay tribute to the emergency services for their professionalism.
I have spoken to both the owners of the property and the port authority and they are awaiting an incident report as to the causes of the fire.
This is the second major incident in the area this year and I trust it will be met with the same strong resilience by those directly involved and the local community. I will work with them and others in the coming weeks in promoting the area for local businesses, the local community and visitors
