HC Deb 06 March 1958 vol 583 c160W
125. Mr. Philip Bell

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what reports he has received from his inspectors regarding the looting of the wreckage of the Bristol Wayfarer which crashed on Winter Hill, near Horwich; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Watkinson

The examination of the wreckage is proceeding but so far no evidence of looting has come to the notice of the inspector of accidents. A police guard was placed on the wreckage as soon as practicable and has not yet been removed. Police inquiries have found no evidence of looting.
