Shoreham Crash Tributes Go On-Line
A digital archive of the hundreds of tributes left following the Shoreham air crash goes live today.
Nearly 2,000 messages left on the Shoreham Tollbridge, which became a focal point for tributes following the crash last August, have been catalogued. On the first anniversary of the disaster, they have been made available to view online by the West Sussex Record Office.
Heart's Bryony Waite reports:
The archive also incorporates the books of condolence and other items, including local and national newspaper reports from the time.
Archivists and conservators spent months drying out and cleaning the thousands of cards and messages left at the tollbridge.
As well as preserving and cataloguing the collection, each message of condolence was scanned so that a digital record of the items could be created to view online.
All of the messages are kept in archival film which will help to preserve them in the future. They have been bound into large volumes, enabling people to look through the messages whilst ensuring they are protected.
Two teenage girls from Midhurst and one from Guildford have pleaded guilty to attacking a 14-year-old girl with a crowbar.
