Summerland disaster: memories of the Isle of Man fire disaster

2 August 2013 Last updated at 18:31 BST

Fifty people died in the Isle of Man in the Summerland fire disaster when a huge blaze ripped through the leisure complex on the evening of 2 August 1973.

About 3,000 holidaymakers were inside the development in Douglas when it went up in flames.

The victims came from across the UK and included men, women and children - 11 of the dead were under 20 years of age.

Kelly Foran talks to some of the people who were first at the scene.
