Right, whats happening? This is the sixth in a month, is it fracking? I only ask that because you may not know this but the Environment Agency are overseeing it :eek

It's the rain by all accounts.

Although I think it's the giant worms.

My old house backs on to the same field!
The field is already full day of gypsum sinkholes.
A recent planning application to build on that field was only rejected yesterday.

Have we had heavy rain before?
Have we had floods before? Remember Boscastle.
Have we had more and more sinkholes since frakking, and heavy rain combined?

You do the math(s) :rolleyes:

Do you remember that air France jet that would down in that atlantic from Brazil some years ago? A passenger who missed the flight left the airport only to be involved in a road traffic accident some hours later.

Heaviest rain in 250 years.

Even if fracking causes sinkholes who cares?
