The Great Storm, 1987

The Great Storm

In the week when we had very severe weather in the British Isles, by some bizarre co-incidence it was also the 30th anniversary of another climactic weather event in southern England.
Rob Ekins, a PC at BTP Brighton at the time, remembered the part he and his colleagues played that night in an article for History Lines: The GREAT STORM, 1987

One of many articles we hold in the HistoryBank section of our website.

UPDATE – November 2017: To commemorate the 30th anniversary Rob was interviewed by the Eastbourne Herald newspaper:
