Published:  01 January, 2008

A fire that took place at a refinery in Coryton, Essex (UK),  in October occurred 24 hours after an inspection by safety inspectors took place. The Health and Safety Executive’s hazardous installation inspectors carried out routine inspections, but a spokesperson pointed out that there was no link between the areas  inspected and the blaze. Refinery managers have said that the fire broke out following a leak of petroleum gas.
