Today is the fifth anniversary of the appalling tragedy in Tenerife when an apartment block collapsed in Los Cristianos. This year, as last, the gatherings to remember the seven victims of Edf Julián José and their loved ones won’t be able to take place but everyone will no doubt be thinking of those who perished at 9am on that desperate day in 2016.
