In January 2005 severe weather caused two water mains serving Hexham to be washed away. The first image is of water bowsers being unloaded outside Burnbrae House on Hencotes. Leazes Lane must have been especially hard hit, and they had a portaloo made available, shown in the second image.
Other images are available in the Water Shortage 2005 Gallery.
