UK: Double-decker bus hit bridge in Stockport. 11 injured (6 taken to hospital) – 270713 1440z

“Six people have been taken to hospital, after a double decker bus hit a railway bridge – ripping off its roof.

Emergency crews were called to the crash on George’s Rd, Stockport at 1.39pm.

Firefighters rescued three women and three men from the wreckage.” – ITV News

A bus has had its roof ripped off after hitting a bridge in Stockport.

At about 1.40pm a Transpeak bus hit a railway bridge at the junction of Wycliffe Street, taking its roof off completely.

Eleven passengers were injured following the crash on George’s Road, just off the A6.

Six of those injured – three men and three women – were treated by firefighters from Stockport and Whitehill stations and taken to hospital.

“A height restriction sign on the bridge limits vehicles to 10ft at its edges, and 12ft 9in in the middle.

One bystander said: “There’s no way that bus was going under there – even if you came right through the centre.”

3.26pm

Stockport crew manager Nick Mottram, from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said: “They were all very lucky, because it could have been very serious.”

2.56pm Northern Rail warning of delays to trains going through Stockport as a result of the crash. Delays will continue until 3.30pm.” – manchestereveningnews

Squirrels infected with plague close California campground

News Reports

 

Plague-infected squirrel shuts Los Angeles park

BBC

California Ground Squirrel (Otospermophilus beecheyi)

Related Stories

Parts of a national forest in California have been evacuated and closed down after a squirrel was found to be infected with the plague.

Los Angeles officials say visitors were ordered to leave the Angeles National Forest as a precaution after the rodent was trapped in a routine check.

They said no people in the area were believed to have been infected with the disease, known as the Black Death.

The plague killed as many as 25 million Europeans during the Middle Ages.

Analysis

It sounds like a screenplay for a Hollywood B-movie: bubonic plague-infected squirrels descend on Los Angeles. But despite the excitement among Angelenos on social media about the “Black Death” being found at a California campsite, health officials say this is not a problem for urban squirrels.

City conditions do not lend themselves to having fleas co-existing in large numbers as they would in a forested area, they say. Even in this forest area where the squirrel was found on Thursday, only five “plague-positive” squirrels have turned up in the last 20 years or so. This particular squirrel is dead – tests are being conducted to determine if it died of natural causes or the plague itself.

It is a bacterial infection which can be transmitted to humans through the bites of infected fleas.

If not treated with antibiotics, it is usually deadly.

There have been only four cases of human plague in Los Angeles County since 1984, none of which were fatal, according to officials.

Further testing of squirrels in the region will be carried out before the campgrounds are re-opened to the public.

Jonathan Fielding, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, told the BBC that agriculture workers would dust squirrel burrows in order to reduce the flea population.

He said that while the area was closed to camping, people would still be able to hike through.

He advised that anyone who wished to do so should use insect repellent and ensure that any pets they bring have a flea collar.

From wikipedia.org…..

Bubonic plague

is a zoonotic disease, circulating mainly in fleas[1] on small rodents and is one of three types of bacterial infections caused by Yersinia pestis (formerly known as Pasteurella pestis), which belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Without treatment, the bubonic plague kills about two thirds of infected humans within 4 days.

The term bubonic plague is derived from the Greek word βουβών, meaning “groin.” Swollen lymph nodes (buboes) especially occur in the armpit and groin in persons suffering from bubonic plague. Bubonic plague was often used synonymously for plague, but it does in fact refer specifically to an infection that enters through the skin and travels through the lymphatics, as is often seen in flea-borne infections.

Bubonic plaguealong with the septicemic plague and the pneumonic plague, which are the two other manifestations of Y. pestisis commonly believed to be the cause of the Black Death that swept through Europe in the 14th century and killed an estimated 25 million people, or 3060% of the European population.[2] Because the plague killed so many of the working population, wages rose and some historians have seen this as a turning point in European economic development.[3][4]

Ireland: Concern about unused quarries and other inland waters after 10 swimmers drown during heatwave – 260713 1415z

The parents of a 15-year-old drowning victim have voiced their concerns about unused quarries that are popular swimming holes among citizens who are looking to beat the heat in Ireland.

15-year-old Kevin O’Hare got into trouble in a quarry between Newcastle and Annalong in Co Down last month.

A 39-year-old man, Colin Polland, also died in an attempt to rescue the teenager.

Kevin’s mother Donna O’Hare has demanded that unused quarries be filled to prevent any further deaths. “They have to do something. All the quarries, they have to be closed,” she told the Irish News.

In response to the mounting number of drownings, environment minister Alex Attwood has announced a campaign to raise awareness of the hazards with unused quarries.

The campaign will use warning signs at dangerous locations and publicity through posters and social media to highlight the danger.

Fill in disused quarries say drowned teenager’s parents

As the heat wave continued on, more and more people are flocking to beaches, rivers, and lakes to cool off. Unused quarries are also becoming popular spots to go for a refreshing dip. This poses a big risk to swimmers as there are no lifeguards on duty should someone get into a tight spot.

Along with the rise in heat, there has been an increase in drowning incidents in Ireland in the last couple of weeks.

At least 10 people have drowned since the heat picked up in Ireland, according to the Irish Times.

Several of these drownings have occurred in freshwater deposits like rivers and lakes.

In a statement from a Valentia Coastguard spokesperson, fresh water is more dangerous than the sea.

“There is less buoyancy in rivers and lakes due to absence of salt in the water, and it is also much colder.”

The spokesperson went on to say, “It’s a matter of educating people.”

With the call for new safety regulations, the hope for educating the youth about the hazards of unsupervised swimming should increase.
