Water and gas boards have been working in my area for over two months now replacing all the pipes with plastic ones - just looked out and see they have dug a big hole in the pavement outside my house so if I wish to get my car out, I can't - you would have thought they might have informed me before digging the hole

Tell them to put a large steel plate over it so you can get out. when they did it outside my drive I made sure that I could get my car out.**M**.

Reading this thread's heading, I thought, for a moment, that it related to 'Waterboarding', a form of torture said to be used by the Americans in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.

Relieved it isn't!
