About 2hrs ago a crane collapsed at Chandlers Warf in Liverpool. I didn’t hear it despite living 2 mins away. I had my door closed and I was trying to get work done. Any loud noises I just assumed were construction / thunder. Then I checked Twitter which had exploded with tweets. Photos were hitting Flickr and Twitpic before the Echo website. Fantastic use of the medium once again proving the importance of Twitter. I grabbed my camera and headed out. Its not every day you see a large crane lying over a building. Its surreal and sort of hard to wrap your head around. Once I turned the corner and I could see the extent of the damage it was clear. The real danger was that there’s a power station right next to that place. The crane could have easily fallen on that and I would hate to think of how bad that would have been. I just hope no-one is injured in there. You can see people in the building being rescued by firemen.
