Digbeth Derailment

The news is all around Birmingham this morning but this was the original story by Alex Hughes so he gets the link.

Take a look at the pile of bricks (Staffordshire Blues) that fell from the parapet.  There is a car under there!  Fortunately no-one was in it at 6 a.m. this morning.

But what is particularly ironic is the fact that the car was parked in front of a "No Parking" sign.  Is this a new way to:

1.  Get people to travel by train?

2.  Fine drivers who park illegally?, or

3.  Bring meaning to the phrase "came down like a ton of bricks"?
