Mayor to seek fire probe

IT was unacceptable for a major fire in New Norfolk to go uninvestigated, mayor Martyn Evans told last week’s Derwent Valley Council meeting. Responding to questions without notice, Cr Evans said he had been aware of media reports that there would be no inquiry into the latest fire at the former Royal Derwent Hospital.

The brick building known as Ward 1 was destroyed by fire early last week and the remains were demolished on the same day, following the announcement that there would be no investigation.

Cr Evans told the council meeting that the lack of an investigation was unacceptable and he would raise the matter with local police.
