"A burst pressure vessel on the heating system . . .". Sorry, but it pays to read the article before you comment. It's nothing to do with a flood plain.

Just shows that he is playing word connection flood equals flood plain. Reckon they should and will get the builders back and have it fixed. The kids are missing out on Xmas fun, (sorry winter fun).

Seems somebody should read the article properly before commenting, it's a pressure valve I had mine go once it's one of those things that can happen.

Strange how there has been a huge increase of new names popping up recently.

Before I even clicked on the story I knew someone would have said this.....

Well done j.day313...... I wasn't disappointed.

Gunner's Park is on a flood plain, that's a fact but does anyone really believe the school would be built in such a way that it would be easily flooded?

C'mon people, get real ;-)
