The newspaper links are screwed .The echo links to the daily mirror and infact you have all three links to the same copy of the mirror.

Funny thing this fire at the pier at Southend on Sea. In July 1976 I must of been on holiday staying with an Auntie at Minster on the Isle of Sheppey. I can remember dad and uncle Brian coming in from a night out at sheerness and announcing that there was a big fire over the water at Southend. Uncle Brian drove us down to the beach at sheerness at the back of the old fair ground where we could clearly see a bright glow far over the water. That is my memory of the event.
