My poor dad arrived home from Australia this morning to be faced with burst pipes. The whole house is a mess. It seems to have burst in the loft and been filling up before washing away the ceilings below. I think most of their furniture as well as the walls and ceilings will need replaced. I have never seen anything like it.
It will be a long day tomorrow, after the insurer has been we can see what can be salvaged. We havn't told my mum, she is still in Oz. I feel terrible, I should have checked the house more often.
