Justice for New Ferry banner hung up at blast site


Two years and three months to the day after the explosion, the blast site looks no different to how it was left after the demolition and clearance companies had failed to clear the site properly in the weeks after the explosion.


You can see that there are still bricks strewn across the site, as harsh reminders that nothing has been done at all to clear the site or to make it safe. Mains electric wires and metalwork protrude from the ground and open water mains still gush water if the hose is unbent.


The blast site is a cruel metaphor describing exactly how the victims and community feel so the hanging of the Justice for New Ferry banner at the blast site is a very poignant symbol.


Christopher Power, one of the many victims made homeless, stands in front of the banner proving that still nothing has been done. And justice is due.
