I remember it happening partly because I remember my father and uncle, both structural engineers, talking about the incident. Also partly because I followed my father's footsteps into the drawing office (having sworn blind I'd never do it throughout my earlier teenage years). So I do recall the inquiry and the subsequent discussions in the industry about making temporary works/shuttering safer.

I was still living in Kent when this happened and can't remember the event at all.It seems to have escaped the internet and I could only find one other picture of it,although members here can probably unearth more information
