Up in smoke

There was a big plume of thick black smoke across the Derriford end of Plymouth on Sunday evening after a coach was set alight at Plymouth Airport.

FIRE crews raced to Plymouth Airport last night as an abandoned coach went up in flames. Plumes of thick black smoke were visible across the city as the blaze took hold near the runway at about 8pm. Sergeant Ryan Canning said: "The fire was first reported by a police community support officer who was in the area, and we had numerous calls from members of the public." The coach was completely gutted and Sergeant Canning said there were also signs of fire in the adjacent portacabins.

Anyone know exactly what coach this was?

  • So a knocker-up would strike the little panel in the wall below the bedroom in which said senior official slumbered. Aroused by the mighty "clang" said official would don his outdoor attire and join the brigade as they hurried, horse-drawn to the blaze. Public Transport Experience
  • It might seem a little morbid to be discussing these arrangements whilst the person is still alive, however there is so much to do in the 10 days or so from death to funeral that this advance planning is essential. Leon Daniels
  • But the Passenger Transport Executive doesn't run any buses; they've all been "privatised". So what exactly goes on in SYPTE Towers? And why are the council tax payers of South Yorkshire paying for it all, whatever it is? Public Transport Experience
  • Founded in 997, the city of Trondheim lies roughly 400km north of Oslo. The third largest city in Norway, Trondheim has in the past been the capital. The benediction ceremony for new Norwegian monarchs is still held in Trondheim's Nidaros Cathedral. Random Streets
  • fbb did consider that moaning about the lack of actual timetable information might be regarded as tediously repetitive by his regular blog readers, so parked the picture in the dark and dismal recesses of his confuser pending its utter destruction and expunging from the multiple giggle-bytes of memory.

  • As can be seen from the map the line operates as two branches, the original line to Bodmin Road, now renamed 'Parkway', still on the Paddington to Penzance main line, while the second, opened in 1888 runs to Boscarne Junction on the former and historic Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway Transport Illustrated
