Imagine waiting at a bus stop and the pavement explodes!!

"Londoners could be at risk of serious injury after a large increase in the number of exploding pavements".

The Health and Safety Executive says it is worried by the rise in blasts across the capital over the past year.

UK Power Networks, the company which distributes electricity across London, claims its system is actually safe.

BBC London reporter Nick Beake spoke with Indran Sivarajah, Colin Wingate, John Steed, principal specialist inspector at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Matt Rudling from UK Power Networks.

I thought being a pedestrian was meant to be more safer than driving in a car 0.0

Who wants to make the FEMA gag this time?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
