    I wasn't living in Nuneaton at the time but I certainly know about it.
    Cool

    I remember it quite well. (My Mother's family come from Nuneaton.) From memory it looked an awful lot worse than it turned out to be. Only about 6 lives were lost IIRC?

    But how the rescue teams (and not just in this case) get over what they see I'll never know. I guess that I'm grateful that they do a job that I know I couldn't.

    That does look a crumpled mess. Sad for the 6 who lost their lives and it's a miracle no more were killed.

    A memorial is being unveiled at the weekend to commemorate the crash: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...veiled-9800245
