Acid incident in Corpach

A Major Incident occurred about 14:30 hours on Wednesday, 10th December, 2008. This photo was taken about 5 minutes after the fumes engulfed the trailer which was parked in a layby near BSW sawmill. No one was directly injured as a result and the road was closed for sevral hours causing chaos to traffic. I was stuck on foot, at the wrong side of Corpach for 3 hours in freezing temperatures. Brrrrrr

Good pic, Magnus! Back in the 'ould country' the wind would have dispersed the fumes at 70 mph out over the sea. Thermals to be taken on future dog walking expeditions?
