Water Main Bursts; London Canal Now Rivals Venice

A water main burst next to the building I'm staying in on Saturday and we didn't have cold water for a while (better then missing hot water by a mile though, right?) I can't say I've ever actually seen one of these go so it was kind of interesting, the opposite of that fire I saw two weeks ago.

I walked by at around 1pm on Saturday just after it broke...I strolled by again at 6pm the situation hadn't changed. There were plenty of elderly British people standing by the new shoreline, going on about the 'cheek' the municipal services.
