Readers will remember the story we reported on Monday regarding the piece of falling metal from the Sainsbury’s development that hit two cars parked in the customer car park.
We’d posed a number of questions to Sainsbury’s HQ at the time and as some of these weren’t answered in our original request, we sent them again.
We’ve now had a response back from Sainsbury’s
“One off incident”
We asked, “What will be the repercussions for the construction company?”
Sainsbury’s answered, “It isn’t appropriate to pre-empt actions against any of the parties involved until the incident has been thoroughly investigated and the circumstances surrounding the incident are fully understood.”
We asked, “Why are the cars of Sainsbury’s customers being exposed to this danger?
Sainsbury’s responded: “This was a one off incident, which was immediately responded to. We believe there is no risk to customers in our car park.”
This is not quite how those affected described the incident. We’ll give you an update once the investigation is complete.
