That work would have started on the following Monday.
It is well worth reading the full Popplewell Inquiry Interim Report into the Bradford City Fire.
3.71: Two letters were then drafted on behalf of the Council to be sent to the Club, the first dated 11 July 1984 read as follows: “I refer to my engineer’s visit to your ground on 4 July 1984 and a copy of the inspection report by TRADA of the west grandstand roof covering, passed to him.
I wish to confirm the findings of that report that the existing felt roof covering and the areas of decayed boarding resulting, consequently creates an unacceptable crowd safety hazard and should be rectified as soon as possible”.
This is such a small issue when you compare it to the other troubles of the world, but for me it's something that drives me crazy every single year.
