Prayer Service To Mark Week Since Bosley Mill Blast

A prayer service is being held seven days on from the devastating explosion at the Bosley wood flour mill that killed four people.

The service will take place at St Mary the Virgin Church in the Cheshire village between 9am and 10am, a week on from the tragedy that "rocked" a community.

Three bodies have been recovered in the search of the wreckage at the Wood Treatment Limited plant in Cheshire.

Derek Moore, 62, has been identified as one of the victims.

Formal identification of the other two bodies is yet to take place but they are thought to be those of employees William Barks, 51, and Dorothy Bailey, 62.

Their colleague Jason Shingler, 38, is unaccounted for following last Friday's huge blast and 1,000C inferno, described as the "worst incident of its kind" in a decade.

A prayer notice said: "It will be a chance for us to pray for our community and the families of those affected, an opportunity to share and support one another, and a time to reflect on the tragic events of the past week."

On Thursday, family members of the four victims visited the site to lay flowers and pay their respects to their loved ones.

Cheshire Police and Macclesfield Police tweeted to say that they would be holding a minute's silence.

The tweet read: "To show our support for the families and community of Bosley we will be holding a minute's silence at #WTcongleton #BosleyIncident".

In a statement, the owners of the mill said that they shared the pain of the community and that their "focus remains supporting the families of those affected".

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is expected to be on site for a number of weeks assisting the investigation, which is being carried out by Cheshire Constabulary and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to establish the cause of the incident.

Witnesses are also being interviewed and evidence is being gathered as part of the investigation.
