A massive fire in Collingdale, north London, was visible from the offices of Mac distributor Computers Unlimited.

The company itself was unaffected by the fire and was not disrupted by it.

CU recently moved into the Radlett Distribution Centre, a brand new facility in a custom built industrial park. Director of Marketing, Richard Love, told Macworld the new facility is: "Significantly larger than CU's old distribution centre."

The Radlett warehouse has over 23,000 square feet of space. Overall, capacity has been increased by an estimated 70 per cent allowing all products to be stored on site.
