Tap found leaking. Proving you can run but you can’t hide. 


Police were called in during the early hours to investigate a dripping noise coming from the bathroom of no.72 of Festing Crescent. Officers said they were responding to a report of a domestic disturbance – ‘as Mum threatened to batter Dad if he didn’t fix it’.


The drip in question had been ongoing for the last fortnight, despite Dad claiming it had evaded detection. Mum, on the other hand, told a very different story, saying that Dad had avoided the task in favour of wrapping the tap with a flannel and locking the bathroom door.


When questioned as to the whereabouts of the stopcock, Dad broke down and confessed he had never seen it. When cautioned he admitted to knowing nothing about plumbing and being a shell of a man. Mum said she was just grateful that the police had brought a washer and prevented a murder.
