One of the more startling images from the oil depot fire in Hemel Hempstead which broke out just after 6am.

Fortunately, being a Sunday morning, there were few people on site, so casualties are reported as light. However, air purity to the east of the site is threatened and one wonders how many carbon credits, co-owners Total and Texaco will have to buy to make up for the amount of CO2 dumped to atmosphere.
