Breaking News

What is wrong with the traffic? Where are the trams?


Oh dear. A crane caught fire and then in a most spectacular manner, the arm broke and it swung down, crashing through trees.

    1. Seems to be EC. Nothing really affected on public land. Fortunately because of the big deciduous trees on the block, the development had to be set back to save the trees.

    1. Gattina, seems not. The crane driver climbed down quickly. There were huge tanks of diesel fuel on top of the crane.

    1. Strayer, it did. Fortunately no-one here was injured. They are dangerous machines and I don't like being near them.

  7. Oh! I wonder if that's the one I saw on the news last night. surely the same can't have happened elsewhere. I glanced up from eating to see it, but didn't catch which city.
