Video: Belfast glassware factory destroyed in fire reopens


A west Belfast glass factory which was destroyed in a fire has reopened.

Despite almost all the stock being damaged, Tony Abbate has managed to save some items that he can sell.

He said: "We just found little pockets that were unaffected which was great, they were just dirty and it's very time consuming trying to clean it.

"Each piece could take ages but in the end it's part of the family business and we all just mucked in."

It was almost a month ago when Belfast Crystal was nearly burned to the ground, but out of the ashes the rebuilding process began.

A crowd funding page set up to help start up again has raised more than £6,000.
