Idly clicking on the BBC site whilst waiting for teatime.
I found this clip. Never seen it before.
Very dramatic!
As a result of this incident, we went to Norwich two years later to tunnel into these mines and survey them ready for filling with foamed concrete.

The bus driver led passengers to safety.

Looking at the height of the front end, that must have been a challenge.

Still, every cloud etc.
