WITH regard to the 30th anniversary commemorations that took place on Monday and your coverage, my father was in the stand at the Bradford City fire in 1985.

Fortunately, and at the age of 78, he managed to jump down onto the pitch.

He had been a loyal supporter since 1918 when he was 11 years-old, and although he did go back to Valley Parade, it was never the same. So many people he knew to chat to weren’t there and he never knew whether they had died or had just decided to stay away.

As the article (The Yorkshire Post, May 11) said, it affected so many people in different ways. Sadly, my father died the following year.
