I was sat in a JCB with the gaffas son smoking funny stuff when I first heard about it on the radio.
He suggested we went to the pub to see exactly what was going on because they had a TV. I didn't argue and we spent the rest of the day in there in disbelief at what had happened..

I didnt hear anything of it til i came home from school. Couldnt believe my eyes. Hats off and nothing but admiration to the fireman who was on duty that horrific day. Thoughts go out to the families who lost loved ones that day. RIP to all who lost their lives and doubt they will be forgotten.
