Lights Out At QVM

As indicated in a previous article, a major interruption to power caused a great deal of concern to traders in the food areas of the Market.

As this isn’t the first time such a situation has arisen some serious questions are being asked by traders. Due to the heat factor, today was always more likely to present operational difficulties at all levels and given the importance of the trading day traders are now questioning the back up emergency plans in place to handle such eventualities.

Whilst the apparent source of the problem reportedly was offsite the consequences were very much felt onsite.

We have been (unofficially) informed that generators are now going to remain onsite for the next week. The photo of the onsite generator was taken at 10:00 am this morning.
