Winter Hill disaster victims remembered

Around fifty people gathered at a memorial on Monday morning, to commemorate the 35 who died in the Winter Hill disaster of 1958.

The short service, at Cooill y Ree, St Johns, was conducted by the Reverend Leslie Guthrie.

The names of those who died were read out, before a poem by Kathleen Fargher was recited.

Margery Fargher was one of those in attendance - her husband died in the crash.
