The... The Horror

"It was as if millions of voices cried out in terror, and then were suddenly silent. I fear something terrible has happened:"

Cargonews Asia reports that a massive fire on board a container ship en route from Singapore to Rotterdam may have been caused by an explosion of fireworks in a container.
It went up in flames at the end of March but only now is it becoming clear that many of the containers on board were full of bicycles and bike kit. said: "Dutch AGU for instance, knows that a container with bike underwear, which they badly need, is some still somewhere on the ship, apparently safe. Other containers are packed with the full year’s production of certain types of bikes."

Shorts my friend, bike shorts.
