"Fire Brigade Please"
I'm heading home, and a 4x4 is parked at the side of the road, smoking gently.
As I trundle past, I realise that this is more than an overheating problem, but a fire.
I don't carry a fire extinguisher, so I sacrifice a thermos of coffee, then help the homeward bound fisherman to unload his gear and unhitch his boat. (Note coffee stains)
By the time I get my camera, the 4x4 is well alight.
It is diesel, and so the risk of explosion is small, though the front tire explodes with a very loud bang.
Oblivious, to the unfolding drama, a traffic controller sticks staunchly to her lollypop in the background.
The fire brigade deal with it in short order,
and as more flashing lights arrive, and the heavens open, I slide off home...
For a coffee ...
