Strike prevents princely pyrotechnics

PowchA strike by London Fire Brigade forced the Prince of Wales to turn to video at yesterday's Campaign for Wool event at Clarence House rather then the planned demonstration of wool's flame resistant qualities.

The prince had planned to set fire to jackets, carpet and duvets to demonstrate the fibre's qualities compared with man-made fibres but because of the lack of firemen had to join with the guests in watching a video of the tests made the day before.

Prince Charles also buried a wool jumper and a synthetic jumper in the garden of Clarence House. These will be dug up in October during Wool Week to demonstrate the biodegradability of wool compared with man-made fibres.

After the demonstrations he spend more than an hour talking to representatives from the clothing and interiors industries and media.
