Freedom Damage Estimate

YESTERDAY, Freedom Bookshop opened with the electricity restored for the first time since the fire attack last Friday.  Reports suggest that there was serious damage to the ceiling in the bookshop that may have damaged the joists.  This is now being investigated.  Other damage was done to the window where the fire was started and some external doors may have to be replaced after the fire brigade broke in and applied their hose pipes.  The loss of stock in the bookshop is estimated at £10,000 but this may be on the low side.  The fire took several hours to put out completely.  There has been wide support from within the movement.
