UP TO 50 homes could lose their water supply again this afternoon as engineers work to fix a burst main.

It comes after 140 home reported having no water in Stonehill Drive, Blackburn, for four hours this morning.

The water is now back on, but a spokesman for United Utilities said the supply could be lost again.

He said: “The delay so far is because we are waiting for the Highways Agency to attend to remove a lamppost so we can get access to where the burst is.

“Approximately 50 homes may have to go off while we repair the burst, but we will not know until we dig right down.

“If it is not bad, we could do a repair with the main still live. It just depends on what we find.”

The spokesman added that as soon as the Highways Agency arrives this afternoon, work will begin.

What you don't know is..
...
In Stonehill Drive, there exists, a rampant jacuzzi sharing thing..
Where naughty things go on, each Friday night..
Languid limbs, entwining, in foaming pools;
with frothy wine, served like water..
Whom, I wonder is going to be the first to claim that..
My life is ruined..
...makes you wonder about their claims, doesn't it?
...
Of course, much as you salivate over these salacious words..
wondering, with dripping, prurient interest, how I know..
Know this! None of them, are true..
Am just demonstrating, to my friend here, in Gt Harwood;
how to write in a coercive form...
To suggest to a reader; something implied and not written.
It never happened!
Languid limbs, in a bath, maybe..
Wine and froth.. stuff and nonsense,
but it's only in your own mind that; by using the certain words,
something wrong, is going on.
What if..
...
In Stonehill Drive, the recession has hit them so bad that,
they share a long tin bath, in front of an open fire.
And then, once done; snuggle together, in that same room,
savouring, the very last embers of the daily fire,
until Dawn gives them respite from the cold of the night..
...
It's so easy; to tap out hurtful words,
when you have a rich vocabulary.
The very paucity of them,
have long reaching effects.
Much as the allegation that there was a crucified soldier in WW1, allegedly held in place, to a barn door, by German bayonets..
