Those crazy Belgians

Two amusing aspects of this article, entitled “U-turn lorry stuck in cul-de-sac”…

> The foreign-registered lorry was carrying 23 tonnes of coke when it became trapped while manoeuvring in Whiterock Road in Wadebridge.

Do they mean coke? Or Coke®? Or perhaps a solid carbonaceous material derived from destructive distillation of low-ash, low-sulfur bituminous coal?

> Traffic was largely unaffected, but police urged motorists to find alternative routes after the accident, which occurred at about 0600 GMT on Friday.

Find alternative routes… it’s a cul-de-sac!

That’s an impressive piece of journalism, that is.

Although you have to wonder what the police are playing at, issuing that sort of statement.
Maybe they enjoy winding up journalists?
