Part of an 11th-century castle wall has collapsed into a house in Sussex. It was reported that a 10m by 10m section of the wall, weighing roughly 600 tonnes, came crashing down onto a house near Lewes Castle.

Incident commander? Well, sure, there’s going to be someone in charge. “Corporal” maybe?
“I would say this is a protracted incident,” he added.

Well, we’ve got to call the blokes with shovels something.
A spokesman said: “Residents are being asked to avoid the area, as there are expected to be a high number of emergency appliances involved in this multi-agency search and rescue operation.
A lorra lorries.
This is expected to be a protracted incident, involving a multi-agency search and rescue operation.”
How much of this is just renaming what has always happened and how much is involving graduates of shovel study, protracted incident and multi-agency studies?
What worries is that there’s a lot more of the latter in this.
