A FIRE & Rescue Service response vehicle was put out of action after being involved in a crash just yards from its headquarters yesterday afternoon.

The duty officer response car was involved in the collision with a UK-registered Ford Focus at the junction of Doyle Road and Brock Road in St Peter Port at around 12.40pm.

Police are investigating the incident, in which both vehicles sustained substantial damaged.

Both drivers escaped without injury.

Fire and Rescue Service control manager Claire McKenzie said the damaged vehicle had been replaced, so the incident would not impact on any emergency responses.

Cue abuse from the anti-British brigade.

Or perhaps, happily, not. It's a bit quiet round 'ere, eh?

Glad you reminded me Matthew to share my disgust in these bloony foreigners coming over here chasing around and smashing up our emergency vehicles, put em on the first boat back to where they came from i say.

We don't have yellow lines over here. Maybe he turned his sirens off to early cause fort George complain it affects thier hearing aids.

PLP

They must have their hearing aids turned up pretty loud at Fort George to hear a siren in Brock Road!

Seriously hough, maybe I'm being a bit selfish but I cycle down that road most days and am very glad it wasn't me there.

I didn't realise that xenophobia was still prevalent. Your are patriotic to the point of fascist and I'll wager that you, bcb, if asked to explain the reasoning behind your bigotry, will lack a substantial justification, but will merely claim that deporting and repatriating foreigners is your favoured solution because it creates a sense of order and stability. Now don't make me have to go on a philosophical rant that discredits Social Darwinism ...

Ha ha ha, I have a strong feeling that the long word that really counts here is 'Sarcasm'. Lighten up man and get a sense of humor.

It does seem that you have difficulty picking up on sarcasm and humour in some cases. Just saying.

bcb

My post was obvious to all apart from Ed that it was just that "humour" i did give Ed that word but he has failed to look it up i can only imagine.

bcb

Damn your good Ed you got me well and truly weighed up :(

Ed

When I tried to be humorous by claiming that sites such as the 'fayre' at Oatlands invited riffraff to the area I was accused as an uppity bigot, yet when you make remarks that verge on jingoism you expect that it be treated as a light-hearted exchange of wit- laugable.

bcb

Who you talking to now Ed? can`t be me i never called you an uppity-bigot did i? :)

Ed

I am referring to others such as 'Wineman'

wineman

cant spell uptity but I think I said snobbery.

nice to be remembered thank you ED

Ed

Wineman ! I haven't seen your name on these forums in ages, yet you make a comment upon my post- something that I didn't even remotely expect. Are you still a This is Guernsey frequenter ?
