While the priority from the outset was to save lives, we have also been working closely with GSA's staff to ensure firefighters conducted an effective salvage operation..."
"We are very conscious that the Mackintosh-designed school is a world renowned building and a key feature of this great city, and that the artworks it stores are not only valuable but also cherished."
