New Cross Fire Massacre March 1981 The Black People's Day of Action' march to the West End of London in protest at police inaction. 1980s UK. <br />
The New Cross Fire was a devastating house fire which killed 13 young black people during a birthday party in New Cross, southeast London on Sunday 18 January 1981.

Nobody has ever been charged in relation to the fire
