Looking back: Do you remember the fire at Peterborough’s Greyhound Stadium?

This is the final set of pictures in our look back at Peterborough Greyhound Stadium in Fengate.

The dramatic picture (top) shows firefighters tackling a fierce blaze in the stand in March 1999.

The next picture shows some of the cast of comedy film Six Bend Trap. Some scenes for the film were shot at the stadium.

The stadium also hosted many charity events and Whittlesey ladies circle held a charity raffle there.
