The Sherfield building was evacuated yesterday after a fire in one of the loading bays.

This HIGHLIGHTS the need for College not only to have its environmental policy, but also to IMPLEMENT the points therein!! If tonnes of flammable recyclable/reusable 'waste' didn't have to be compacted in an electrical machine, fires might break out less frequently!

Awful shame the fire didn't spread too far though...

Maybe the compacter was full of old stationary that doesn't comply with rebranding.

Surely you mean dilapidated, not delipidated ;-) Incidentally, both "dilapidate" and "delapidate" are in the dictionary, but definitely not "delipidate".

Ho hum...

Maybe we should move out all the admin staff who don't talk to students. They could go somewhere like Milton Keynes or Slough.

That's Sykesthoughtism for you.

No, South Ken's quite pretty. He's more likely to move the students to Slough and keep the admin staff here.
