One unusual comparison between the newspapers revealed that whilst The Times used the term  lorry , The Sun used the term HGV which is the more usual formal term for this vehicle and tabloids are expected to use informal terms.  This is shown in the

use of the abbreviation  Met. Office  whereas The Times refers to it by the full title  The Meteorological Office .  

Furthermore, the article in The Sun is poorly constructed.  This is shown by the use of a sub title reading   Miracle  followed directly by a sentence describing a man being crushed by a tree.
