Pirelli factory in Carlisle, UK back on stream
Carlisle UK--Pirelli UK's tyre factory is back on stream after it lost power during severe weather on Saturday morning. A spokeswoman for the company said the factory lost two days' of production--about 30 000 tyres-- following the power outage, which affected the whole Carlisle area.
Although the company canteen lost its roof, the factory itself suffered little structural damage, said the spokeswoman. She added that all the employees and their families were safe, though many had lost cars and suffered property damage during the flood.
