Me­mo­rial un­veiled to Bosley mill vic­tims

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE, am­bu­lance and fire ser­vices have marked sec­ond an­niver­sary of the Bosley Mill dis­as­ter with a me­mo­rial stone.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the or­gan­i­sa­tions which at­tended the ex­plo­sion in July 2015 paid tribute to the four peo­ple who died at Wood Treat­ment Ltd: Derek Moore, 62, Dorothy Bai­ley, 62, Wil­liam Barks, 51, and Ja­son Shin­gler, 38.

On Mon­day, the an­niver­sary of the tragedy, there was a short ser­vice and a minute’s si­lence for the fam­i­lies, friends and for­mer col­leagues in the me­mo­rial gar­den at Bosley Chapel where the stone has been laid.

Dun­can Palin, sta­tion man­ager with Cheshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice, said: “There are some in­ci­dents that re­main with you through­out your ca­reer and the ex­plo­sion in Bosley is one that will never leave me. The lay­ing of the slate com­mem­o­ra­tion stone will serve as a last­ing me­mo­rial to the peo­ple who sadly lost their lives and the fam­i­lies they left be­hind.”

In­spec­tor Cather­ine Mitchell, from Mac­cles­field Po­lice, said: “This tragic event had such an im­pact on all those in­volved, we felt we needed to do some­thing to re­mem­ber those who died and this me­mo­rial stone felt a fit­ting tribute.”
