Manvers rail disaster

 

Mr Brooks, aged 17 at the time, heard the crash and was one of the first on the scene.  He said he was ushered away so that the professionals could get on with the rescue. Mr Brooks son, took him to the memorial , to re-live that moment.   Although, to be honest, the surrounding area has changed so much – it was difficult for him to get his bearings
