MVS aids in evacuation of Bristol Tower Block


MVS Bristol were among the local agencies called in to assist in the evacuation of a tower block in the city after structural problems were discovered.

Around 400 people who live in Barton House were told to pack a bag of clothes and leave.

Bristol City Council said surveys conducted on three of the 98 flats found there to be a “risk to the structure of the block” in the event of a fire, explosion or large impact.

Residents who were evacuated from the tower block amid chaotic scenes may not be able to return for weeks.
