The first two figures in a memorial to miners who lost their lives down a Derbyshire pit have been unveiled during an event to mark the 40th anniversary of one of the county's worst mining tragedies.
Eighteen miners died and 11 others suffered serious injury when the mechanical brake on a lift carrying them to the coalface failed at Markham Colliery on July 30, 1973.
It was the third disaster at the colliery, following accidents in 1937 and 1838, with a combined total of 106 miners losing their lives.
