More than two million litres of water have been used in the fight against the flames so far.
Yup, this is a very sad state of affairs!
Call me cynical, but sometimes I wonder if these fires are deliberate, and not from some vandal's carelessness with his cigarette butt.

This seems to happen a lot.... now I'm not cynical by nature but three examples off the top of my head are
St Georges, Stafford
JN Millers, Wolverhampton
Langley maltings, Oldbury (near enough)
(all of which are on here by the way)
I'll let you draw your own conclusions however...
Langly Maltings....that's only down the road from me and i didn't realise such a great building existed. What a sad state it's in now.
In all it's glory before the fire
If a grade II listed building can;t be protected, what status will ensure this thing doesn't happen to other buildings? Really, some people just don't care about their history
