Dear Mr Wallhead

I have as yet not received a response from you regards my letter sent to you all last week. Further to my letter sent to you last week, information received confirms my concerns regards to the safety of the Featherstone public.
During last week there were 3 fires in the same properties. This was obviously made very easy as the properties were not properly secured.
My concerns grow in light of new information. Again you are aware of the road closures that now leave only 1 access to Verner Street. In the last week this access has been blocked off completely. This has resulted in a number of repercussions that are wide ranging and life threatening.
During the time of the first fire the elderly people’s home was due to start its Christmas party. The entertainment could not get through resulting in a 2 hour delay leaving many residents simply falling asleep. At the other end of the scale you also had care workers and medical supplies at both sides of the fire unable to get through. This resulted in late medication and late attendance to provide care. It is by luck that no serious incident occurred at the home or within the residents of Verner Street.
The same situation was repeated because of the next 2 fires. As the situation still exists with the addition of snow and black ice I believe it fair to predict that if there is another fire then there is a fair chance a fatal incident resulting.
As this is now obviously a highways issue it should be fair to request the immediate demolition of the properties concerned in the interest of saving human life.
 I cannot inform you much more only to let you know of the first fatality.
