The recent cold snap is taking its toll on Yorkshire's water pipes - with 400 burst pipes in Leeds in the last three months alone.Copyright: BBC
Over Yorkshire 1,100 leaks on the water system were repaired in just December - a record according to Yorkshire Water.
The freezing weather causes underground pipes to contract and thaw, resulting in leaks or bursts occurring which are then fixed.
Yorkshire Water say they have a team of 200 "leakage inspectors" using drones, "acoustic ears" and even satellites to find leaks.Quote Message: The prolonged freezing weather has led to a spike in our repair work, but we are committed in the long term to reducing our leakage rate by 40% by 2025." from Andrew Roach Yorkshire Water

With the news that Hull's famous Adelphi, now in its 34th year, has secured its its long-term future, a few notable figures associated with the club have been weighing in:Copyright: Ian RookQuote Message: The Adelphi and its ethos are not typical of any performance space in the UK. We believe CIC status will give the Adelphi the opportunity to serve the community for a further 34 years and beyond, a legacy for the city of Hull.” from Paul Jackson Founder, The AdelphiQuote Message: The Adelphi makes perfect sense as a venue. It commands respect as it reeks of history. I'd visited 20 or so times before I finally got to play there. Everyone in the band was much better off for the experience. It took us back 8-9 years to an era when everything in the band was wild, exciting and delightfully confused." from Bob Nastanovich Pavement (US indie rock band)
