Comment on the explosions at Mossmoran

Explosions at Mossmoran – https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-50019712

Cllr Linda Holt, board member and spokesperson for Mossmorran Action Group

“I was shocked to learn at Lesley Laird’s Working Group on Mossmorran today that the two boiler breakdowns in August were both accompanied by explosions. David Green of HSE described the breakdowns as “catastrophic”, and they are currently the subject of a live investigation by HSE. We were also told that neither HSE nor Exxon have so far identified the cause.

Rumours have been circulating locally that the boilers exploded, and HSE’s confirmation makes a mockery of ExxonMobil’s communication strategy. For years local communities have lived with the fear of an accident at the plant; trying to hide explosions behind an announcement of £140 million investment will only exacerbate local mistrust and fear.”
