Mains Water Burst

Just what we needed between Christmas and New Year!

See how the drive along the side of hedge is lumpy, that's where the main water flow from the burst just beyond th end of our drive was. The damage was much worse than this photo shows. First we knew about it was when the United Utilities insurance assessoer woke us p at 8 in the morning to tell us how hey were going to put everything right.

Some water flowed into the garage causing a little bit of damage but the real bad thing was that it soaked the wing roots of my Sportster RC model aeroplane. The effect of this was to render the whole aircraft useless - they don't fly well without wings!
