Warwickshire fire: 'Support has been truly humbling'

Two senior fire officers have been found not guilty of the manslaughter of four colleagues who died tackling a blaze at a Warwickshire warehouse.

Incident commanders Timothy Woodward, 51, and Adrian Ashley, 45, were charged after the Atherstone-on-Stour fire.

Fire service officer Paul Simmons, 50, was acquitted five weeks into his trial on the judge's direction.

Speaking outside could on behalf of all three men, Mr Woodward said that the support they had received since the "tragic events of 2007" has been "truly humbling".
