THIS week we rewind 33 years to the mid-1980s and a look back at Basingstoke in 1985.

Other notable events in the UK were:

•The first mobile phone calls in the UK are made.

•The Sinclair C5, a battery-assisted recumbent tricycle, designed by the British inventor Clive Sinclair is launched.

•British Telecom announces it is going to phase out its iconic red telephone boxes.

•EastEnders, the BBC1 soap opera set in the fictional London borough of Walford, debuts

•Rioting breaks out at the FA Cup quarter-final between Luton Town and Millwall at Kenilworth Road, Luton; hundreds of hooligans tear seats from the stands and throw them onto the pitch before a pitch invasion takes place, resulting in 81 people being injured.

Here is what was happening in our town in the same year.
