Further human remains have been discovered on the site of a burnt-out mill in Oldham.

Police now believe there were ‘at least’ two victims of the fire that tore through Bismark House Mill in May.

Specialist officers have been searching the remnants of the premises since demolition workers discovered human remains on Saturday 23 July 2022 – 10 weeks after the blaze itself.

An urgent appeal for information has been issued amid reports that four Vietnamese men were missing.

Detective Superintendent Lewis Hughes said: “We are carrying out an extensive search of the remnants of the mill to ensure any further human remains are recovered in a way which is respectful to both the deceased and the bereaved.

“Meanwhile, our Major Incident Team are continuing to liaise with partner agencies to ensure potential family members in Vietnam are fully informed and supported.

“Though we’ve now recovered human remains to suggest that at least two people were in the mill during the fire, we remain conscious of the report we received, on Thursday 21 July 2022, that four Vietnamese nationals were missing and may have been involved in a fire.

“Alongside the search and recovery efforts, extensive enquiries are being carried out to establish the full circumstances surrounding the fire. Any criminal offences identified as part of this will be progressed immediately and appropriately.

#UPDATE | Specialist officers searching Bismark House Mill, Bower Street have recovered further human remains, indicating a second victim.
