Why do the Fire Service feel the need to use stupid phrases to describe an incident?
The information below was taken directly from the Chads version of events.

[b]The vehicle left the carriageway and hit what the fire service describe as ‘[b]road furniture’.[/b][/b]

The information tells you absolutely nothing as to what the car was in collision with.
It may well be that it is a silly term that they use to describe an incident in their own "code", but to the rest of us it means nothing at all.
If it was a bench that it hit, then call it a bench!

Road furniture usually means sign posts, bollards etc.

So why don't they say that, instead of using a stupid phrase like "road furniture"?
The report actually gives no description of what the car hit.
It could have been a bollard, road sign, street light, or anything that is found at the side of the road really.

Looks like Sheffield has a similar fire to the one at our tyre dump. News reports say it was initially a refuse fire that spread to a plastics recycling plant. You can see the plume of smoke rising to our North and the band widening as it moves across to our East. If it's plastic, it will be toxic, so let's hope the wind doesn't change direction.

Disgusting... it is precisely reasons like this that Warsop is unlikely to get a brand new skatepark because some of the youngsters have shown time and time again that they do not deserve it. I realise I am assuming its 'youngsters' without any actual evidence and happy to be proved wrong.

Indeed and I do hope they find those responsible and give them a prison sentence! It's the mindless few who spoil it for the rest!

It looks like they're renewing the pavement there, but this isn't really 'news as it happens', so it's in the wrong thread. ;)

You can put anything like that in the General Discussion topics, or you could start a thread yourself at any time.
