From the end of the Thatcher years to the invention of the National Lottery, a lot happened in the early 1990s.
Back at the turn of the century, the Halifax Courier put together a Millennium Souvenir guide with some of the top stories featured in the pages of the paper each year from 1900 to 1999.
We’ll be taking a trip down memory lane looking at the top stories throughout the decades, this week looking at 1990 to 1994.
