Well it wouldn't be the same if they didn't burst a water main when digging up BHS.

hilarious! you can see one of the workmen in the background, presumably having a cigarette. He looks like he's enjoying it!

(BTW when did the mobile phone shop turn into a Starbucks ?)

So all those multi coloured spray painted dotted lines the surveyors painstakingly put on the streets before anyone digs really are a waste of time.

Tell me about it.

They bust my water main a couple of years ago putting in a new power line on our street and then went home for the day, after having told me it was fixed, and left me without water.

Starbucks has been here at least 2 years!

They obviously knew this was a risk - there was a note through the door from Thames Water a few days ago warning everyone in the area there will be no water overnight on Thursday 12 December.
