I was looking out for the A380 from Birmingham when I saw the smoke, it was a touch of Deja Vu, it looked just like the last fire.

The smoke will magically turn into pound notes from the insurance company

These scrap yard fires are getting too regular. The first thing people think is "Insurance" but it costs a great deal of money to dispose of some waste. Very useful if a pile gets burned away, not so much to dispose of. I am not saying that this is what has happened in this case of course.

These fire's happen so often ,it makes you think that way,it alway's seem's to be a great pile of plastic ,which if I remember right is one of the most expensive item's to recycle.

Anyone with COPD caught in all that smoke could finish up in hospital quite easily.

I could still smell burning plastic in Yardley on Thursday.

I could imagine that some people WITHOUT COPD could end up dead getting caught up in all that smoke Joe
