No one can fail to have been moved by this week’s shocking events in Wright Street, Newark. Our town found itself in the national media spotlight in the aftermath of a huge explosion in which two people tragically died.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to their family and friends. Within seconds of the blast passers-by and neighbours, with little or no thought for their own safety, were helping to rescue those left trapped in their homes. They are reluctant heroes and say they simply acted on instinct. Their bravery, however, surely deserves commendation.
