ABSTRACT
The article reports on the reconnection of more than 1,000 households and businesses in Rothbury, Northumberland in England that lost their gas supply after water got into the town's gas network. Specialist engineers were brought in to install a huge water siphon to remove water from the pipework. A welfare centre was set up at a local school and more than 600 fan heaters were distributed to vulnerable customers to help them keep warm.
