35 Years Ago Today

Today is the 35th anniversery of the Bradford City fire.

56 people died in an horrific fire, I can still remember the news coming through on the radio as we were making our way home from Maine Road.

R.I.P.
Always got used in fire training courses at work. Horrific.

I think it gets lost/forgotten about because of Hillsborough but it was just, if not more horrific.

Time flies.

That's incorrect!

It's just down to it being little Bradford.

I watched the BT documentary and it was disturbing.

City had just been promoted and I was on a packed bus singing and shouting with everyone else.

Someone with a radio (someone always had a radio back then) started telling everyone to shush, we assumed it would about United losing or something similar and it still took a few minutes for everyone to realise what had happened.

When I got home, my mum had the TV on and it's only then that I saw the full horror.

RIP to them, I always feel this tragedy is never given much remembrance in the media.

I wasnt born yet.

Some of those who died were still sitting upright in their seats, covered by remnants of tarpaulin that had fallen from the roof

Facking hell
