The former Sayers Bakery in Norris Green, Liverpool was severely damaged by fire on Sunday 28 September in a suspected arson attack.

Firefighters arrived at the bakery just after 8pm and it took thirteen fire crews to control the flames. Police were forced to seal off the road and neighbouring residents were asked to keep their doors and windows shut.

A spokesperson from Merseyside Police said the fire had started in multiple locations. Forensic officers will now conduct an investigation.

The bakery has been closed since June, when Sayers’ parent company, Lyndale Group, was put into administration.
