Link not working for me, but removing '2116724095' from between 'u' and 'k' to give 'uk' as in .co.uk makes it work Wink

And I wonder how many 'concealed' bodies they'll find in the concrete rubble?  Roll_eyes

@RobPN   Thanks for that.... have "reported to moderator" hoping they can fix it, as the stupid forum timed out on fixing it myself.

Finding bodies was my first thought @RobPN but didn't they find them all?

Hard to get excited about it given the number that died, but a sight to behold nonetheless.

Re: And there it was - GONE !

Reminds me of a railway bridge they tried to demolish near where I worked as a apprentice many years ago. One Sunday they were going to blow the bridge and had all the diggers and lorries lined up to take rubble away,  but 'they don't build bridges now like they used to' - the bridge was made of Staffordshire Blue engineering bricks ( heavier than depleted uranium and the only thing harder is diamond ) and lime mortar.  well the explosions never made a dent ( maybe their drills could not make holes in the bricks to put charges ) and it took them about 6 weeks to take the bridge down a brick at a time with hydraulic jackhammers / chisels mounted on digger.arms... such fun, no bodies were found as far as I know even though it was not far from Peaky Blinders territory ( in Oldbury near Brum ).

Err ... I was referring to bodies disposed of during the bridges construction ... Wink

Ah right, so a bit like the Hammersmith Flyover then. Smiley
