Remembering the victims of the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster

A ceremony was held in Dover to mark the 32nd anniversary of the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster.

The families and friends of those who lost their lives and many Dovorians were in attendance at the remembrance service at St Mary's Church.

I was among those paying their respects.

A roll-call was read out of the names of the 193 people who lost their lives when the Herald of Free Enterprise capsized off Zeebrugge on March 6th 1987.

 The people of Dover will never forget this terrible tragedy. Yet again large numbers turned out for this deeply moving service – as they rightly do every year.

We will always be there to care for the families and loved ones who live on.
