Theft of memorial plaque

From Andrew Hall

Those of you who have walked in Blake Dean will probably have seen a plaque commemorating two boys, who, along with their father, died in the disastrous fire at Bradford City football ground on 11th May 1985.

The boys' mother visits the site every year. On one occasion, her car was broken into. This year, she found that the plaque had been stolen. A replacement plaque has now been organised, but the original is obviously very special to her.

I'm surprised our local press hasn't, to my knowledge, picked up on this. There are more details on the Bradford Telegraph and Argus site (Let's hope someone has the decency to return the original plaque.
