Aftermath of the New Cross Fire Tragedy A few years ago Jonny Virgo started making a series of black history documentaries for a mysterious gentleman he met online. Around this time of year he’s always reminded of a particular event, that marked a turning point in race relations in the UK. On 18th January 1981 a fire ripped through a house on New Cross Road in South East London, killing many of the young, black revellers who were partying there.
