BUS FIRE:

Here's what we know: A DOUBLE-decker bus was evacuated in Bournemouth this afternoon after a fire broke out in the engine compartment.

Firefighters from Red Hill and Westbourne were scrambled to Montgomery Avenue in West Howe after the alarm was raised at 12.36pm.

A spokeswoman from the fire service said the bus was evacuated and no one was injured.

The crews extinguished the fire, which is believed to have been started by a fault in the engine.

If people bothered recycling more of their waste, and creating less in the first place, enormous quantities of this stuff wouldn't have to be buried for future generations to enjoy the delights of such issues reoccurring. Burying waste rather than doing something more positive with it is a indication of just how poorly humans regard the planet!

Regarding the "should-be-finished-
by-now" roadworks in Castle Lane, it looks to me like it is going to take at least another two weeks. I'm glad my children don't go to the schools along there as it's going to be a nightmare.

We do have an update on how long it's expected to take: it's going to be the end of September.

Transport bosses say they will now liaise with schools and bus operators to try and come up with alternative arrangements for pupils and parents until the work is finished. Full story here

FIRE: A brief word of advice from Public Health England:

‘Any smoke can be an irritant and as such, if people need to be outdoors, they are advised to avoid areas affected by any smoke or ash or to limit the time that they spend in them. As chemicals in the smoke can worsen existing health conditions, like asthma, people who are visiting the area who normally use an inhaler should carry it with them.’
