One Dandy Of An Accident

Not your typical comics related news story but on Wednesday morning the flat bed trailer of an articulated lorry carrying steel beams crashed through the wall of D C Thomson’s Guthrie Street printing plant in Dundee used for printing annuals such as The Beano and Dandy. Fortunately no one was hurt in the building or the car the runaway trailer clipped on its short journey down the hill.

The Scottish Television website has a video report on the aftermath while the crash itself made it onto the BBC and into The Scotsman newspaper. Thomson’s themselves covered it in the Dundee Courier.
