Funny plumbing facts

Just before I wrote this fun  blog  I received an emergency call out to attend Bromsgrove Police Station, someone broke in and stole all the toilets. Apparently the police officers have nothing to go on……….Hopefully they get better I’m just a bit tired after a busy day rodding a number of blocked sinks…..it was draining…… (I’ll grab my coat)
