  • Still no sign of a replacement. Told maintenance engineer, (Gas lamps), of redundant cast iron stand just beyond Wickham Court in lane but no progress. Surely the lorry insurers should foot bill for replacement, isn't that what insurance is for? I wonder if it would take this long had it happened in Clifton?
