Today is the 30th anniversary of the Bradford City stadium fire, in which 56 people died and hundreds were injured. An inquiry found that the fire was an accident, probably started by a spectator dropping a cigarette into the rubbish that had accumulated under an old timber stand. The fire spread quickly and engulfed the entire structure within 4 minutes. Tony Delahunty was the Penine Radio reporter who commentated on the game, David Sharpe is the founder of Bradford Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit and Gabby Logan's father was Bradford's Assistant Manager at the time of the fire.
