Sprinkler fault floods factory

A FACTORY suffered flooding after a fault set off a sprinkler.

Firefighters were called to Saica Packaging on Hartlepool's Oaksway Industrial Estate, at around midnight on Saturday.

A fault in the sprinkler system had caused water to pour out in a loading area where reels of paper where being stored.

The brigade spent an hour and a half on the clean up operation and an engineer was also called out to fix the fault.
