An important day for many people

shorehamThe publication at midday of the final report by air crash investigators into the Shoreham crash will surely help relatives and friends of those who died to gain a degree of closure 18 months after the event. The same is hopefully true of members of the emergency services, some of whom have been severely impacted by their involvement in the aftermath of the tragedy. It seems strange that in a nation where we have one Government that in theory sets down the basis for all of our statutory services including the Police and other 999 agencies, the Civil Aviation Authority and of course the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) that there cannot be a faster response in matters such as this. One of the big problems faced by many state bodies is that the level of resources available, both financial and human is finite. Training people up to do difficult jobs takes time under normal conditions, let alone when a crisis has occurred. There are also occasions where political interference takes place. Whatever the reason for the delay in publishing this report, it is vital that after the publication and the content has been digested by those affected, that we do get told why it has taken so long and if things need to change, that they do so.
