The blaze at the historic bank buildings resulted in a safety cordon  around the remaining shell. Businesses surrounding the area either shut down or struggled due to the lower footfall which is estimated to have fallen by 60%. Following that bank building fires, Ben Mansfield (Primark stores director) stated ” Today marks a significant milestone for our people, our neighbours and the wider community, as we take the first step to get back to business”.
