In all seriousness though it did look fairly serious down there when I went past. A colleague went by probably not long after it happened and said there were a dozen or so police cars on the scene and when I went by on my way home there were three ambulances, a fire engine, at least a dozen coppers I could see and that white tent set up in the middle of the road.

 

It's a pity this thread was started by Truthlogic because the (understandable) automatic reaction is to take the michael.

drugs , or body parts dont require full hazard suites! do they?

 

Drugs might. A vast number of different gases certainly would; indeed it's far more likely to have been a leak of gas than anything else, if they were evacuating the area.
