Daily Mirror 13 May 1985PC Graham Jones, who also burned his left arm in the rescues said: ‘I saw the first puffs of smoke and started to climb into the stand. I was trying to put the fire out, but within minutes knew there was no chance.

I helped one old man down the stand and on to the pitch. Then I went back for another man.

By the time I reached him the stand was collapsing’.
