    Water mains!

    So i got woken up this morning at 3:10 by the sound of fast running water. So not thinking i getup and go and check the taps. Then think, things smell a bit on the damp side look out the back door and see this.




    It turns out that a 21 inch water main pipe had burst up on the a21 by The Crown and had ran to the lowest point.
