There was an incident in Bridge Street , Kirkwall, yesterday when this car struck a wall and became stuck. The account and picture posted on The Orcadian Online give a somewhat surrealistic impression of an accident that is free of both impact and interest. Stories of this kind are a reminder of the famous Claud Cockburn headline that he, as a sub-editor, prepared for an issue of The Times in the early 1930s - 'Small Earthquake in Chile - Not Many Dead'.
