IMPORTANT: The following deals with a sensitive topic which some may find upsetting, therefore audience discretion is advised.
On October 21st, 1966, a landslide of coal waste from a nearby colliery hit the village of Aberfan, falling over Pantglas Junior School and a number of homes nearby.
Jeff Edwards was eight years old at the time and was one of the schoolchildren rescued.
In this short video, Jeff bravely recalls with remarkable clarity his memories of that fateful day and the impact the disaster has had on him and the close-knit community of Aberfan. He also pays tribute to the emergency services, miners and communities who displayed such courage in the hours and days which followed the accident.
In the feature, we also hear from former PC Hubert Thomas who like so many other police officers was designated duties at the scene.
Nearly six decades on from the Aberfan Disaster, we remember those who died, and our thoughts are with the community of Aberfan and with those who lost loved ones.
The victims will never be forgotten.
South Wales Police encourages anyone affected by a traumatic experience to seek support through contacting organisations such as Samaritans, Mind and CALM.
