Genome: [r4 Bd=19700820]

In September 1950, when the mine road in No 5 Heading was driven upwards to within 38 feet of the surface, no one in the mining industry realised that disaster was imminent.

Suspended above it, and made almost liquid by violent and continual rains, was a vast field of mud and peat. When it cascaded down into the workings it trapped 116 miners in what appeared to be a hopeless position.
