Three teenagers arrested over Sony warehouse fire

The fire saw massive amounts of independent record label stock destroyed

Three teenagers have been arrested regarding the fire at the Sony warehouse on Monday (August 8) in Enfield, north London.

Two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old have been held over violent disorder and arson. The youngest suspect has been bailed, while the others are still in police cells, reports London 24.

Stock from over 150 independent record labels, including XL, Domino – to which Anna Calvi is signed – and Sunday Best, was lost in the fire and yesterday PIAS issued a statement, updating their progress in overcoming the major incident.


It had been initially thought some releases would be delayed after the warehouse was burned down during the rioting in London, but the firm has said they expect to start shipping orders again next week.

The statement reads:

Sony DADC have actioned their Business Continuity Plan and are back up and running from a new control room in Enfield. PIAS continue to work with them to minimise the impact on the business, a number one priority for all labels and clients.

It continues:

Sony DADC have identified a temporary distribution partner and it is envisaged that they will be in a position to pick, pack and ship orders in the course of next week.
