The video from RESCUE 137 has the position …

Comment posted BBC news piece with helicopter footage of derailed freight train on West Highland Line by Lundavra.

The video from RESCUE 137 has the position of the helicopter displayed at the bottom of the frame. I converted it to NGR and looked up on the map as none of the news reports gave the position. It is about 2.5 miles from Fersit so about 2 miles from the nearest road (or track) by the East end of the dam.

  • Lamont standing down immediately as Scottish Labour Leader
    Gordon Brown is only rarely seen in Parliament and declared an income of nearly half a million from public speaking last year, would he be prepared to take on a full-time job? Though the possibility of a spell as First Minister might appeal to his ego.

    It could increase bag usage. I might not want to put things like milk cartons which often leak, smelly or wet things etc in a reusable cloth bag because it will need washing afterwards. So I could want to put each in a separate free bag as entitled to do under the act then into the reusable bag.

    As I wrote earlier the tree-huggers used lies about them lasting a thousand years to justify it.

    I haven’t seen a definition of which bags are liable to the tax.

    If you go and get fish and chips, do you have to pay the tax because you are unlikely to want a reusable carriar bag to be left smelling of fish and chips.

    My use a bin liner was successful and cheaper than paying the 5p tax.

    As well as the responsible using them for putting rubbish in the bin, collecting up dog mess etc.

    I wish they would get their story straight. The tree huggers first claimed that it was because the plastic single-use bags took a thousand years to break down but this has been shown to be a lie. Now it is the effect on wildlife of litter so why no levy on other litter. Why a levy on good old fashioned brown paper carrier bags? I always preferred them when supermarkets used them and they are biodegradeable, made from recycled paper and unlikely to harm any wildlife.
    I don’t think they succeeded but the tree-huggers wanted the charge for multi-trip carrier bags to be increased dramatically because people were buying them and only using once.
    I intend to get a roll of bin bags to keep in the car as a replacement for carrier bags.
