Burst Pipe Floods Shops at Mill

FLOOD damage to a mill shopping complex could run into six figures, its has been revealed.

But the owners of Ena Mill, in Atherton, are resolving to reopen to the public in less than 10 days after the flood wiped out the entire ground floor and large areas of the first floor.

The flood is believed to have started between Sunday evening and Monday morning. The ground floor was the most seriously hit, with water as deep as three inches in some places.

Simon Yates, from Ena Mill, said: “It’s devastating. We’re just taking stock of it all at the moment.

“It’s one of those situations that nothing can prepare you for. It couldn’t have come at a worse time, just before half-term — it’s an important trading time for us. We’ve been advertising heavily and forecasting a record week of sales.

“We had already turned away 400 people before lunchtime on Monday.”

He added: “All we can think about is getting everything cleaned up and reopen as soon as possible. Our lives are on hold until we do.”
