Summerland - Summerland disaster - Netflix

The Summerland disaster occurred when a fire spread through the Summerland leisure centre in Douglas on the Isle of Man on the night of 2 August 1973. Fifty people were killed and 80 seriously injured. The scale of the fire has been compared to those suffered during the Blitz.

In October 2002, torrential rain caused damage to several structures, as well as two landslides behind Summerland which dislodged two 50 tonne concrete blocks that had once supported the roof of the original building, but had not been removed in wake of the fire. After a geotechnical team determined that the blocks could not be safely stabilised or removed, and that there was a risk they would fall into the buildings below, the site was scheduled for demolition. The remainder of the site closed in 2004, and demolition began in January 2006. The west wall remains intact as there is concern that its removal may cause the adjacent cliff to collapse.
