JUSTICE FOR NEW FERRY CAMPAIGN GROWS


28 August 2019

Some 30 months after the explosion that rocked our community, it has become ever more painfully evident that New Ferry was let down by both the Council and particularly government. Our victims - who until recently had received little or no compensation - have had to witness the retailers of Salisbury who lost 2 weeks of trade handed 2 million in compensation payments, whilst more recently, the businesses and residents of Whaley Bridge have been offered up to 150,000 compensation each for "5 days of inconvenience".

OUR traders lost a minimum of 6 weeks of trade, and some lost their businesses altogether. RESIDENTS spent months - and in some cases - YEARS out of their homes, trying to recoup their losses from less-than-helpful insurers.

The truth about what happened on that night, and in the 30 months since, can now be read in detail on a new website www.newferryexplosion.com

On it, you can find out what happened to the victims and how they feel about the way the New Ferry Disaster was handled. You can also contribute your own thoughts.

The website will remain and be maintained as a legacy to the victims of the explosion, so that their story is never forgotten.
