Cumbria tribute to Derrick Bird’s victims placed below a massive gun
THE tribute in Seascale to Derrick Bird’s 12 victims is a £1,000 commemorative plaque declaring “In Memory Of All The Victims Of The WEST CUMBRIA SHOOTINGS 2nd June 1010”. Derrick Bird murdered 12 people in Cumbria on June 2, 2010.
The large lettering to the “WEST CUMBRIA SHOOTINGS” suggests shouting, turning the horror into less of a reason for community mourning that an exercise in PR.
Are we being oversensitive?
You can go to see the tribute for yourself – it’s been placed on the town’s ramparts, beneath a large cannon.
