The Cutty Sark was gutted in a fire that police are treating as suspicious. Well, that sucks. Thankfully, a fairly recent conservation project had already been planning to restore the historic ship, and members of the project say it can and will be rebuilt.

isn't it bizarre. I mean...why?? I heard this on the radio this morning while I was half asleep, and was sure I'd dreamt it. I grew up very near Greenwich, and I remember calling it 'the galleon' when I was a kid. Think I'd just learnt the word, or something ;)

Yeah. Why would someone burn it? Well, there's always someone with a grudge or a gripe against the gub'mint, and they find some destructive way to let off the steam, but still...*shrug*...who knows, maybe it was just lightning, or a careless smoker.
