I'm surprised they didn't see that one coming! Does nobody think about spoil heaps moving?

That Aberfan disaster was caused by a spoil heap crushing a school, was't it? smiley - erm

Bad memories Icy North, but hopefully they have avoided loss of life unless it gets worse. I was watching a TV programme the other night about the 2012 floods, and there was far more footage than I had seen on the News bulletins.

We were home just in time to miss the Dorset tragedies, but it is clear with all the wet weather continuing that there is going to be more of the same in the future.

GB, smiley - sorry if it has stopped you travelling but at least you are safe.

smiley - cheers
