The company that housed Britain's emergencypersonal protective equipment(PPE) stockpile was beset by "chaos", leading to the Army being scrambled to organise and distribute supplies, it has been claimed.
Movianto, the firm that managed the nation's supplies of PPE, temporarily stored supplies in a smoke-damaged warehouse which contained asbestos, according to an investigation by ITV and The Guardian.
The smoke damage occurred after a generator malfunctioned in late 2018, causing significant soot damage to the cladding. Movianto said: "There was no smoke ingress into the building and no damage to the stockpile."
