I had just started at senior school and I was really struggling to adjust to a new environment. I remember I was walking home, calmly, and then eventually I got home and went upstairs to my room.

I sat there, feeling quite unsure whether or if I liked it there, and decided to put a VHS on to try and feel better. I switched the television on and decided to watch Grease and reached for the cassette.

I remember looking at the front cover of Grease and hearing the new presenter saying something about the crash, I looked up and saw the rubble lying all over the ground. And I thought to myself ‘WTF has happened?!’ I ran downstairs and my step dad was sitting in front of the TV watching it.

Though it’s not a very vivid story, I remember looking back and thinking how weird it was and how I’ll remember it forever. Very sad and strange day.
