    I was on that double decker that day. We all got put in a massive communal cell in Lincoln cop shop and were individually asked if we saw anything. I think I was about 15 at the time. I got home at 3am and me mam went ballistic. Shaun Tordoff mentions the event in his book.

    Speaking of Brid, I think you will find that the town has it's very own Gypsey Race. Just sayin' like.

    Gypsey (not gypsy) comes from the old English gypsia, the meaning of which I am sure you will be familiar with. It doesn't race much nowadays, more a very small trickle.

    There used to be rugby pitch the Grammar School used next to the Gypsey Race. The longest ever penalty kick in a rugby union game was scored there. It is in the Guinness Book Of Records. Kicked by the father of a regular contributor on City Independent.

    If we are all done commenting on these can they be moved to the history thread as someone suggested earlier.

    Ta very much to everyone for their memories of the times.

    I'm not sure what's best, so I'll merge it all now and we can filter any posts not needed out later.

    Thanks for posting them. I know some involved with organising things back then has read them. <ok>

    I see Sunderland are down in their usual place even in 1969/70
