You in the UK call it a digger. We here in the United States generally refer to it as a backhoe. A relative of ours was rebuilding a cottage in the countryside; he got a grant to do so on the condition that one wall would remain standing. Once the rest of the house was razed, one of his workmen accidentally backed a digger into it, and he built the new wall out about four feet farther. But that's nothing compared to this bloke in the UK who took down his landlord's house with one.
An unidentified trailer-park lessee of James Harvard's apparently became rather disgruntled with the management, acquired a piece of heavy construction equipment, lowered the machine's bucket onto Harvard's two cars and then proceeded to smash into the house for about ten minutes, and according to eyewitnesses, doing so in a very calm manner. He was booked on attempted murder and criminal damage. Let's lynch the landlord, indeed.
