    being

    Hi,

    'It is the widest in Birmingham, being about 12 km..."

    Could we omit "being" here? I think so.
    What's the difference between these two sentences (one from above and other without "being")?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Re: being

    Yes, you can and there's no real difference.
