Torrential rain from 5pm onwards meant we had the irony of fire engines stuck in the traffic jam caused by flooding. Yup, it's not just ambulances these people ignore.

5 x 10 m, sounds more like a garage or a shed. ( tin sheets). probably with self done electrical needs.  Bingo!. Spark-spark.  :-)  Lucky neighbours.
