    This is coming through on the news wires:-

    Two people, understood to be apprentice jockeys attached to trainer John Quinn, are believed to have been killed in a fire in a block of flats in Norton, near Malton overnight.

    A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Police has said, "At this stage it is believed two people have died although this cannot be confirmed until the fire has been fully extinguished and officers are able to enter the building and carry out a full search.

    "Two other casualties, two men believed to be in their early 20s, have been taken to York District Hospital where they are being treated for the effects of smoke inhalation and burn injuries."

    My deepest sympathies go out to the families and freinds of Jan and Jamie.

    Also to John, Sue, Sean, Kelly and Michelle who I know will be heartbroken by this devastating news.

    It’s sad when anybody dies, but for 2 kids who’ve not lived properly is devastating. And what they must have gone through, I can only begin to imagine.

    All my condolences to the families involved.

    Apparently the families haven’t been informed yet, so best you delete the names.

    Paul, after the 10 days this country has been through, I’m not sure why words fail you. The mentality of a minority in this country is despicable and they seem to be doing their damndest to turn this place into one huge vigilante state.

    The lads in the yard were talking about it this morning when I was doing my horses. Police and Fire engines were all over Malton.

    They have announced one of the dead jockeys to be Jamie Kyne. I don’t follow flat racing so know nothing about this rider, but still this is terrible news and my sympathies go to his family and friends.

    It certainly puts the pathetic and ridiculous media circus regarding Kieren Fallon into perspective, please no more.
