Three fire service workers have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter in connection with a massive Midland warehouse blaze that left four firemen dead.
The men, a 43-year-old from Nuneaton, a 49-year-old from Leamington Spa and a 48-year-old from Warwick, presented themselves at a police station.
Warwickshire Police said they were arrested in connection with a blaze at a vegetable packing plant at Atherstone on Stour, near Stratford in November 2007.
They were due to be questioned on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter and offences under the Health and Safety Act in relation to their role in handling the inferno.
A Warwickshire Police spokesman said: “Three men have been arrested in connection with a fire in which four fire fighters lost their lives in 2007.
“They will be questioned on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter and offences under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Ashley Stephens, 20, John Averis, 27, and Darren Yates-Badley, 24, lost their lives tackling the huge blaze.
Their bodies were recovered after days of searching through the gutted building.
The fourth man, 44-year-old Ian Reid, died in hospital from injuries he sustained when a roof collapsed.
It was the biggest loss of life for British firefighters since seven were killed in a fire in Glasgow in 1972.
The blaze raged for over five hours.
