Local news

My father shows me the local newspaper. There, in a tiny side-column on page fifteen, next to the chiropodists' opening hours, is a bit of news.

A small blaze ruined a shower in a house in Hamburg Road. A local man led his wife to safety.

"No mention of the bucket of cold water then?" I asked him.

So it was curtains for the shower then?
