I wonder if there is any way of finding out a Report In the Y.E.P. concerning an accident that occured in Blackpool ain the mid/late 1960s. A Lad who lived opposite me in Beeston was in partnership with another Leeds lad called Terry. thety were Partners in a Hard floor tiling Business, This young man Terry was on a trip to Blackpool andthough i don't recall the exact details, there was an accident and he lost both legs under a Tram.

Though i never actually saw it, his partner David told me that within 12 months he was back working on wooden blocks and using his artifical ones the rest of the time.

Sorry not to be more precise with details..... but sadly it did really happen.

I would not now bother mentioning errors in the YEP but one on page 1 of today's issue (March 26 2018) particularly amused me :). That page has a major report of plans to build 756 flats. Of the plan the YEP refers to "The £180 masterplan for five acres of land at Globe Road...". Now unless it really is being done on the cheap it would seem a million sign is missing! ;).

PS. In the 'Full story: Page 6' it does mention £180m.

OT but I think even £180m is doing it on the cheap given current building costs. I think the reconfiguration of the junction involving Clay Pit Lane, Woodhouse Lane and Cookridge Street is costing several million.
