Inscription

This clock tower was erected in 1996 to the memory of
Stephen Hammond
David Richardson
Paul Richardson
who were overcome by fumes while working in this building 22nd September 1990.

The plaque refers to the men being overcome by fumes while "working in this building" but the tragedy took place in a sewer.  Seems the plaque authors chose not to state the unpleasant truth.
