It burnt from 9am (ish) well into yesterday evening. Westgate Road (SJB - Clayton Street), Cross Street & Fenkle Street were all closed and there were at least 7 or 8 appliances in attendance. I was driving across Grandstand Road at the north end of Town Moor when I first heard the news on the radio and you could smell the smoke all the way up there.Kard Bar on Cross Street has burnt down:
It was an unusual shop and I dare say had you wanted a Crass badge from there to complete the look, he'd supply it. It's sad to see Kard Bar destroyed as this was the kind of shop you'd only find on Westgate Rd.RIP to the man who lost his life.
With all the talk about it I was curious to it's exact location. I never realised that it was the store where I went a few times as a teenager, I once got a human dog collar from there (you heard right) and some spiked wristbands.
Is the 'Discount Electronics' building which has also been damaged, coming down?Following thew article in the Chronicle Live the other day ^^, here are some photographs taken yesterday, 19th November 2016 to show the state of the building.
