A CLEAN-up operation is underway this morning after a high pressure hot water pipe burst flooding a block of flats in Southampton.

Fourteen residents had to be re-housed in hotels over night after a torrent of hot water jetted out on to the first floor and communal area of the Empire View apartments in West Park Road.

Fire crews from Hightown and St Mary’s were called at around 2.45am and spent more than two hours removing water.

Residents described the panic as very hot ankle-deep water poured through the corridor outside their rooms.

One woman, who did not wish to be named, said: "I looked through the peep hole in my door and there was steam everywhere.

"There was one lady in particular who was really distressed. I really felt for her.

"One of our neighbours who was walking around in the water had red feet because it was so hot.

"My daughter was really traumatised by the experience because there was a lot of panic."

It is thought the leak started in one of the flats and affected a number of others on the same floor.

Red Cross volunteers were called in to help look after residents as fire crews worked at the scene.

Those affected spent the night in a Jurys Inn hotel.

This morning First Wessex staff were on the scene to help with with clean-up operation.

A colleague lives here and it is a mix of private and social housing.
It is not the first problem that has occurred with this block of flats.
Drew Smith who constructed the building should be taking responsibility and resolving all the issues.

If the water was hot, why did people walk around in it? Very strange.
I do feel for the woman who saw steam through her peephole, she must be deeply traumatised,I hope she gets the counselling she needs.

The vast majority of Council or Housing Association Tenants are either in work or pensioners.

The workshy scroungers myth is put about by millionaire Tory's in the Cabinet to deflect attention away from how they are ripping people off themselves.

So poor plumbing must have been put in by 'foreigners'? Shut your bigoted trap. Funny how all your comments are along the lines of 'I know this person so am able to comment', the signature remark of a serial bullsh1tter.

In my last post I did say I DON'T KNOW WHO DID THE PLUMBING but as I know there's a lot of migrant workers now working in the building trade I was asking the question what level of qualification must they have to work here so bigoted not really correct is it?
As for I know someone right as I haven't asked those people if I can print their names that's all I can say but the builder friend employs mostly Polish workers so hence my question.
I also asked what happened to the final inspection & the testing of the systems/appliances does this make me a bigot?
My wife is Thai I get on well with the Thai people & I'm not a racist but was just asking a question about skill levels so why does some one who hates this city have the cheek to call me a bigot?

As I have said before, I don't follow political parties sheeplike. Milliband is completely wrong about the EU but at least he is honest about it, unlike C'moron who knowing that at least 60% of the electorate want the referendum is making statements that will be forgotten if he is unfortunately re-elected.

Just what are you on?[/p][/quote]Why don't you think before you come out with comments like this? you say you went to a good/privileged school? this is how they taught you to react to people was it? Out of all the people on here I must admit your the biggest idiot. I hope UKIP see sense & have nothing to do with you[/p][/quote]Keep taking the pills, they may work one day.[/p][/quote]I hope you watched you beloved Ed Milliband on Sunday? How can you who supports UKIP also support Labour? After what Milliband said they're opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to the EU? Yes I take pills but these are Statins I hope you know what they're for? I don't touch any other form of drugs do you?[/p][/quote]As I have said before, I don't follow political parties sheeplike. Milliband is completely wrong about the EU but at least he is honest about it, unlike C'moron who knowing that at least 60% of the electorate want the referendum is making statements that will be forgotten if he is unfortunately re-elected.

In my last post I did say I DON'T KNOW WHO DID THE PLUMBING but as I know there's a lot of migrant workers now working in the building trade I was asking the question what level of qualification must they have to work here so bigoted not really correct is it?
As for I know someone right as I haven't asked those people if I can print their names that's all I can say but the builder friend employs mostly Polish workers so hence my question.
I also asked what happened to the final inspection & the testing of the systems/appliances does this make me a bigot?
My wife is Thai I get on well with the Thai people & I'm not a racist but was just asking a question about skill levels so why does some one who hates this city have the cheek to call me a bigot?
I live in Southampton, so I can rightly call it a sh1thole. Do you know every single migrant worker employed in the plumbing trade?
