"Fury at council plans for crash site"

"A CONTROVERSIAL plan to move the 1967 Stockport air disaster memorial has provoked a furious response from one of the rescuers at the crash scene.
"The proposals are part of a £70m regeneration scheme which promises to transform seven acres of derelict land at Hopes Carr, in the heart of the town centre.
"And developers Inspired Developments, and Stockport Council, claim the majority of victims’ relatives are in favour of creating a more peaceful memorial site - where they can remember the 72 people who died in the plane crash."
