There is always a “twist” to the Girnhell story. The latest demolishing contractor left the site today ahead of time. The last 3 homes he was due to demolish are next to 2 occupied homes. The problems then start. It appears that many years ago some dimwit decided to burry the gas mains only 2 ft down. Any demolition would rupture the pipe. The only way to work would be to cut the homes off. WMDC appear to have failed to get this sorted.
Does anyone know the regulation for the depth a gas main should be buried? Two ft sounds wrong. Perhaps the residents could call HSE and demand a new gas main that would cost £60k plus. Always a good bargaining tool.

How difficult is it to decide a steel plate is stronger than tin foil.
