RAF Westwood Hangar Fire (1977)

The aftermath of a fire that damaged the old aircraft hangar at Westwood in 1977. The hangar was a survivor from the RAF Westwood site and had been earmarked for development as an indoor sports centre.

The fire, combined with a number of accidents involving children playing in the old buildings, eventually saw most of the surviving buildings levelled.
