Guitarist (UK) magazine print run entirely immolated on M5 motorway 

“Hot Off The Press: Nearly 50,000 copies of Guitarist burn in lorry on M5

The entire print run of Guitarist’s new issue – ironically featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante as its cover star – has been burned in a lorry fire on the M5. Thankfully the driver of the lorry was unhurt. Two lanes were closed between junction 6 and 5 northbound following the incendent early this morning and caused a tailback of around five miles. We’re hoping the issue will only be a day or two late on the shelves as we wait for a re-print. “

No mention of how the fire started. Personally I think the driver should have tried to put out the flames with his own body; doesn’t he know this is the only magazine I buy every month and now I will have to wait *two* extra days?
