I was watching BBC1, not sure exactly what the show was, but I caught a fright when a sudden interruption brought me straight to a grey-haired bloke on the news.

Telling us all about what happened, I stared in shock, failing to believe what had happened. Assuming it was a terrible accident at first, a second plane had hit the tower – on live television. They had replayed it so many times…eye witness accounts, disturbing footage of the people commmitting suicide. Just madness.

My wife then entered the house and rushed into the living room, and sat next to me. We held hands and tried not to show fear. But it shone through as sweat trickled down my face and the wife shed tears of woe.

I will never forget that interruption. Never.
