Gary Benton… that’s a great video

Chris Meachen… I remember the bang when that happened, it rattled our windows in Halton…

Stella Huggett… I remember it well. My grandparents in Italy so a photo of it and thought a bomb had gone off.

Harry Randall… Remember it well! They said they would never build on the site! Yeah?

Iain Cobby… My parents and I lived above the Burger Bar at the other end of George St by the Hastings Arms. Fortunately we were on holiday in Cornwall and came back to the pandemonium a week later!
