  1. Hi Craig, thanks for the quick reply, I have notified the roads authority through the online system as soon as I got home and got a reference code. My worry is that there are markings around the hole and one even has a "Gas" label on it, my worry is that the markings negate the roads/infrastructure authority, .... Or am I wrong?
  2. Hi, was driving along a town centre road at at the last minute spotted a huge pothole and attempted to swerve to avoid. The front wheels missed the pothole but my rear wheel rim took the full impact of the pothole and lost a chunk of the alloy. I then changed the wheel to my spare and drove home very annoyed and reported the pothole online to my local roads authority. So I'm now sitting with an alloy that appears kaput and a tyre no longer staying inflated and I'm peeved that I have just spent £250 to tax my car and feel my roads authority owe me a new wheel. I will try and upload a picture or two and would appreciate your invaluable input as to how I seek justice?
  3. Hi guys, it's been a while since I last sought some advice but as I'm sure you can see by the title I am one of the many with a dodgy whirlpool/creda tumble dryer. Before the most recent whirlpool moving of goal posts in the last week I reacted when the Government stepped in at the begining of July 2019. I called Whirlpool and was not surprised to find that I had one of the deadly Tumble dryers, I was told to unplug my machine immediately and they would arrange for an engineer to come and see me. I work for myself and the only time I am available is from 7- 8am and after 6pm. I was told that they could not guarantee me a time but could only give me a four hour window and after 6pm was not within their available times. An engineer arrived at 10.30am and put a sticker on my machine stating "DO NOT USE" and issued me a print out confirming that he had issued me this disclaimer. I asked why he was unable to fix and was told he didn't have the parts. I asked what parts were needed and was told. New drum with a conical back and something for the rear of the machine. Ten days later and having to take another morning off work the engineer arrived and changed the parts, then upon final inspection he discovered the "new" drum was warped and told me he would have to order another. Five days later and still without dryer, the engineer returned and changed drum and left. This was at the start of the really hot spell we have been experiencing of late and I foolishly never checked the dryer and just did my washing and hung on clothes line. Today I have a big summer wash and clothes line full so I thought I would use dryer to speed things along and started the machine to be greeted by a squeal and a realisation that there is no heat in any setting, it simply tosses and turns clothes but doesn't dry! Called the Hotpoint recall line and was politely told that it was not a recall problem as my machine had been mended, rather it was a Customer Service issue!!?? I asked why it wasn't a recall issue as my machine was fully working before the work performed and my machine had not been mended rather it had been broken!?? Contacted Customer Service and have been told that they will not be sending an engineer out and as my machine is a few years old my damage was coincidental with the recall work and was now broken due to wear & tare!!!???
  4. Thanks Craig, I have discovered through the internet that these are supplied with space saver spare and therefore Jack & wheel brace.
  5. Have just returned from helping a family friend out this evening, she was stranded at road side with puncture, and no spare wheel, car jack, wheel brace or emergency puncture repair kit in the car.The car was the lady's first and she bought on the basis of colour and because it was cute, in other words the car dealer saw her coming and quickly worked out she was not aware of what to look for when buying a car. So, tonight in pouring rain and in the dark at the side of the road I had to give her and her son a lift and abandon her car at roadside.Before, I call the 2nd hand car dealer tomorrow, I want to calm down abit and seek the advice of CAG on this matter. I understand that many cars are no longer sold with spare tyres/wheels and a foam repair kit is often supplied, but this car I now know is supposed to be supplied with a spare wheel as the deep hole in the boot suggests. There is no tools present/supplied to jack the car and nor is there a wheel brace.Am I correct in thinking that legally these should have been supplied? What course of action would you recommend?Thanks as always for any help offered.

  7. I'd ask him if you could view his CCTV and write to him requesting that he maintains a copy for future reference.
  8. Thanks Jamberson, It was one long undivided bay and she was an awful woman. I have a Google earth link posted in the opening post if you look to the right the long bay is just outside Solicitors Doherty & Brennan.
  9. mHi guys , I was in my town centre earlier attempting to park, I have attached a photograph of the exact bay(Coleraine N.Ireland) This was at 4.50pm and there was a car parked at the rear of the bay as is demonstrated by the photograph. There then would/should be enough parking for a further two cars in theory and normal practice, however I arrived to find another car at least 2 metres from the car behind and not enough room for me to get my front wheels inside the box in front. As I was attempting to manoeuvre I got a knock on my passenger window stating they were the car behind and I was cm from the front of their car and not legally parked in the space! I smiled, apologized and asked if they would be awfully decent and give me three to four feet of that 2m space they had behind them, and was point blank told No! So, at this point a traffic warden arrived and ordered me to move and when I told him that the other party was "deliberately" occupying two spaces and when asked to accommodate another car had refused. He stated he didn't care and his concern was that I had two wheels on double yellow lines. ......So, I missed my appointment! my question is, I had a friend who received a ticket for being parked across two parking bays in a car park. This is one large parking space/bay that was designed to accommodate three normal cars and due to one Party being deliberately awkward was only able to accommodate two, why does this not qualify for a ticket or an instruction to park with more consideration? How do I attach a picture? PS: This is not private parking, it is parking at road sides controlled by local council. 48 New Row https://goo.gl/maps/jcQKKk1oJzs
  10. I beg to differ, he never claimed the essay to be his own work, in the thread title it was attributed to the London Times.
