As the boundaries of the criminological imagination extended to include social harms beyond narrow official and popular definitions, disasters became subject to critical attention (Coleman, et al, 1990; Scraton et al,., 1995; Davis and Scraton, 1997). Harm, it was found, was not restricted to that caused by disaster itself In major UK disasters, social and official responses were found to compound the distress of victims in the immediate and longer-term aftermaths. The years since this research was completed have seen significant developments in legislation and guidance. Police and local authority crisis support teams have been allocated detailed prescriptions for intervention in the immediate aftermath with the aim of making responses more sensitive.
