Fire at Heathrow Depot


Rotala plc (AIM:ROL), an operator of bus routes in the UK for businesses, local authorities and the general public, announces that earlier this week the Company's Heathrow depot at Stanwell, Middlesex suffered a fire in its administrative offices. No staff were injured and the fire is not thought to have been malicious.


The fire did not affect the vehicle maintenance areas or damage any of the Company's vehicles. As a result, normal bus operations are unaffected. Repair to the building and rectification of the considerable smoke and water damage is estimated at this stage to cost approximately £250,000, which is expected to be fully recoverable from insurance with more than one insurer. There are therefore not expected to be any long-term financial consequences for the Company.
