Re: 18 NOV 1946 – HEBBURN PIT EXPLOSION…
I was in Bella Gardners shop that day and the blast nearly knocked both Bella and I off our feet Bella screamed oh my god pet are you alright,I found out later that the three kids had been throwing lighted matches down into the shaft from where they had climbed up,they were blown off the top and had their eyebrows scorched they were lucky not to have been killed.I vividly remember that day.
