The fire broke out on Thursday evening and resulted in the evacuation of the entire building. Manchester evening news reports.

And Morrisons has since written to schools in the area to let them know they can’t shop alone.

The letter reportedly read: “Unfortunately, effective immediately, school children are not allowed into our store unless accompanied by a parent/guardian.

“This is because a fire was started in the shop around 6pm yesterday which resulted in the shop being evacuated and the fire brigade being called out.

“The fire caused significant damage to the store. Could you please let all students, parents and guardians know about this.”

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Services said: “At 6.30pm on Thursday (3 March) firefighters were called to reports of a fire in the toilets of a supermarket in Stanley Road, Whitefield.

“Three fire engines from Broughton, Bury and Whitefield attended the incident.

“Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus worked to quickly extinguish the fire and make the scene safe. GMFRS was on site for just over an hour.”

It’s not the first time the supermarket has had problems.

In October, police released surveillance footage of two men they wanted to speak to after an off-duty police officer was attacked outside the same supermarket.

And in 2019, MEN reported how employees at the same supermarket were afraid to leave work alone after being abused daily by a gang of idiots.
