Yet another example (like we need them) of poor automatic headlining. "Great Belt Bridge?" - something to do with China's Belt and Road initiative? No, this is the bridge in Denmark where six died in a collision a few days ago.

Can we PLEASE have the ability to edit/alter titles for this forum to reduce confusion...

Hi apw,
I don't see what the problem is. The accident occurred on a bridge called the Great Belt Bridge. This is a well known bridge over a body of water called the Great Belt. Nothing to do with China or their expansionist policies.
Reporting would be the same as if an accident occurred in the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a bridge built over a body of water called Sydney Harbour.

Moreover, there is an existing discussion on the accident at https://Railpage.com.au/f-t11399076.htm in the International section; can we stick to that, please.
