Really glad this memorial has finally been completed after years of trying to get the last bit of funding.
It marks the worst British civilian disaster of WW2, when a terrible crush occurred while people rushed to get underground during what they thought was a bombing raid. New anti-aircraft guns had been positioned in victoria park, and when they started firing in an unannounced test, locals rushed to the unsafe entrance of the unfinished station, and in the ensuing crush 173 people died, including 62 children
Our local MP has written about it here, and the parallels to eminently preventable disasters up to this year, at Grenfell
