One of Glasgow's favourite roll suppliers was left to count the cost of Storm Agnes today after the weather blast halted production at its Drumchapel factory.

Flooding late last night caused water to seep into one of the Mortons Rolls plant's electrical junction boxes, meaning that the main production belt was unable to properly fire up when staff arrived this morning.

As a result, deliveries had to be halted at the Allardyce Road factory until power was restored around midday and meant that only a limited number of outlets received their usual supply of crispy and soft treats.

Owner John McIlvogue said: "It's been a nightmare, the phones haven't stopped ringing with people wanting to know what happened.

"It has been a problem, but in another way quite reassuring. It seems that if Glasgow doesn't get its daily Mortons delivery then everyone's day just isn't the same, which is nice from our point of view.

"The good news is that we will be back up and running very soon and the vans will be back out fully stocked tomorrow. Normal service will be resumed in good time for Glasgow's breakfasts on Friday."

Mr McIlvogue led a consortium of investors to save the iconic business earlier this year following its shock collapse.

The consortium took ownership and control of the company’s assets in March and has since transformed the firm back into a thriving going concern, re-employing over 100 of the workers who were initially made redundant.

At the time, Mr McIlvogue declared he wanted to eventually bring back every worker's post, adding: "This is the first step in getting Mortons Rolls back to where it belongs and we’re ready to start producing our famous rolls that the good people of Glasgow have been crying out for.”
