Aberfan minute's silence at 9.15 this morning

Fifty years ago today 116 children died in the terrible Aberfan disaster when their school was buried in a pile of mining refuse.

This ghastly tragedy was an example of why people should always be ready to challenge authority and it should never be forgotten.

In memory of those who died and their families there will be a minute's silence at 9.15 am today, fifteen minutes after this post and exactly fifty years after the disaster. I will be observing it.

Rest in Peace
