The pic with the Wimpey 8 wheeler, I'm not sure which i'd be more concerned about - the 4 storey unsupported wall or the huge piece of masonry perched above the RB!

The wall has a return on it still and the other has steel in it. What more do you want. :)

Hi Pete,
That Wimpey 38 RB and Mammoth Major Tipper pic. was taken at the demolition of Merthyr Vale Colliery just up the road a mile or two from me.
That's the colliery that generated all the shale tips that slipped causing the Aberfan disaster.

Is that a big Hymac with the Leyland recovery?

Pretty sure I have loaded that Leyland tipper of Rawlings back in the day on site in Waterlooville Hant's when I was operating a JCB 805BT for JM Smyth!!
