Valley Parade Fire Disaster

Those of you avid fans will know we’re football (soccer) fans over here at OTU Towers.

On the 11th May 1985, during a match between Bradford City and Lincoln City, on the day Bradford were presented with the trophy for winning the 3rd Division, a fire broke out in the stands. The fire, which can be seen in the video, quickly turns into a blaze resulting in 56 people losing their lives, and 285 people being injured. More can be read on the Wiki page here.

Unfortunately not enough people know about this tragedy.

Today, OTU pays its respects to those 56.
