    Serious incident in Glasgow

    My point earlier was regarding the handbrake failing. To fail, it would have to allow air into the system, the default is all wheels locked under spring pressure. I just can't see how it could fail and fill the system with air.

    Most companies only use agency workers so they never have any employment rights. One beginning with "B" used to employ until the day before the employee had legal rights, then get rid.

    Serious incident in Glasgow

    I'd make that 18 tonnes, those compactors weigh a lot. All are auto's. I suspect it was in neutral and the handbrake was off.

    Really. I have about a week normally and then the destination changes depending on what happens in that week. It's not unusual for me to book a hotel and flight within a day of travel.

    I specifically asked, where was your sausage? Either way, it's a pretty shocking accident record. Why is it so bad?

    We probably want different things from our holidays... I prefer "Life experience" type travel to sitting on a beach in a tacky resort.

    Damaged alloys wheels whilst being fitted

    They should have just fitted the tyres by hand, without using the machine. If they have damaged them they should pay for remediation, either repairs or new wheels.

    Serious incident in Glasgow

    I only know of one other incident involving a refuse collection lorry, a rollover in Nottingham. Why are there so many in Scotland. Two in Glasgow in under a year is significant.
