Why do these idiots go near to the rivers when you just have to look at the ammount of water flowing to know NOT to GO THERE.
Hope he is charged for the Call Out. MORON

Sorry pinkfluff, for sounding grumpy, but when I was driving along Hylton Road and across the bridge last night the river just looked dangerously high, so who would risk going for a walk on Pitchcroft??? Accidents happen because some people don't think.

Jabbadad, the gentleman concerned was infact a homeless person who had his tent pitched on pitchcroft. He pitched it when all was dry but awoke to find himself marrooned. He was not an idiot just a person who has fallen on bad times and did not know that that area of land would become flooded.
Maybe next time think before opening your mouth|

Where did it say this in the report? It said a man was taking his dog for a walk. So perhaps you also should think before engaging your mouth.
And of course almost everyone apart from this gentleman know that Pitchcroft floods, and the river was already very high at 6pm. So who but a Moron would camp by a river when floods are everywhere.
And I do support the homeless possibly as much if not more than you.
