SOME readers/viewers will know that there was one victim of the 9/11 tragedy that hailed from Thurrock.
Tilbury man Neil Robin Wright left Tilbury to work on the 84th floor for Cantor Fitzgerald in New York City.
There is a grave for Neil, along with his grand-parents in Chadwell St Mary cemetery.
YT filmed a tribute on the tenth anniversary at the grave-side on his death.
We returned to the cemetery just before we left for New York. The police were in the cemetery as yobs had vandalised graves nearby.
A few days later, on a very rainy Wednesday morning in lower Manhattan, we went to the 9/11 memorial and found where Neil’s name is inscribed on the North Tower pool.
