Post-modernism arrives in Greater Manchester

Health and safety officers had to be rescued by health and safety officers when part of their office building collapsed. And after the rescue, more health and safety officers arrived to conduct an investigation of the incident.

Twenty-one officers had been discussing evacuation procedures around a large wooden conference table when the floor beneath them gave way.

Workers on the floor below saw the ceiling start to sag and buckle and ran out of the room.

Seconds later the floor gave way completely, plunging the health and safety officers, their table, chairs, flip charts, clipboards and paperwork into the office below.

Thirteen firemen using ladders and ropes pulled the officers out from the debris.
