Roermond fire out but don’t eat the veg

People living close to the Koma factory in Roermond have been warned not to eat vegetables from their gardens or let children play on the ground or in sandpits until the soot released by the fire has been analysed. The factory, which makes cooling equipment, was destroyed in the blaze, which was finally extinguished in the early hours of Wednesday.
