Susan Fletcher on the first Bradford City fire test case

Report on a test case brought by the victims of the Bradford City Football Club fire. Susan Fletcher, whose husband and son died in the disaster, talks about why she is taking action against the club.


Below is also an interview with Susan Fletcher following the end of the test case.


In the high court, both Bradford City Football Club and West Yorkshire County Council were found to have been negligent in allowing litter to build up over many years under the void of the club’s wooden main stand, and to have done nothing to clear it despite explicit written warnings that it was a fire risk. Two years later, the club were found to be two-thirds liable, the council one third.
