Yes i came home one morning to find water pouring down my drive, strange as it may seem the burst water pipe is nothing to do with my cottage it supplies several houses at the back of my property, any how i went out this afternoon to find two bloody great holes in my garden. In one i could just see the top of a safety helmet moving about, rather bemused i went out and asked why the owner of the helmet was digging there, he told me all about the burst pipe and that he and his mate had been contracted to fix it but they could not find it, (they are not usually this deep he said), now standing looking up the length of my drive with the manhole cover at my feet and my cottage to the left of me it was obvious they were digging to the right of a straight line from the manhole cover , i put it to these guys that may be they were digging in the wrong place, ah they said, you are wrong we found water seeping out of the ground where we are digging the pipe must be here but deeper. So i left them to it and went to visit mom, came back home about an hour ago, the two holes are now one and about 8ft deep, the men have gone leaving a pump pumping the water out of the abyss. Should i insist that they dig where i suggested? i do not care one way or tother my damages claim is just going to get bigger the more mess they make.
