It was very kind of the council to put a YACF bottle in each hole for you ;D

This one put me in hospital:



The council initially said that it was less than one inch deep and therefore not their responsibility.  :o

They then insisted it didn't appear on their records, which didn't stop them filling it in a week after my accident.  >:(

I think that one deserves a suitable Macbethian quotation:

Quote from: Donalbain
What should be spoken here, where our fate,
Hid in an auger-hole, may rush and seize us?
Let's away. Our tears are not yet brewed.

This one caused the bike in it to go end over end last night. Luckily no serious injuries or damage. Look carefully, & you can see the end of the valve below the surface of the water, & the faded white line around the near right hand corner, probably from before it was repaired (badly) last time.

Checkendon, South Oxfordshire. Already known to the council, according to a local resident who stopped to offer help.
