Pavement peril

Council workmen appeared outside the Bar Bikini, which is near Dave & Lauras’ Spar shop, and proceeded to dig up the pavement and in doing so, cutting off access to the bar! The licensee requested that they only dug up half of the pavement to allow at least some access to the bar. However this request was refused and the machinery dismantled the pavement so quickly that an elderly disabled woman was trapped inside, along with her Zimmer frame.
There was no prior warning of the pending works, according to the bar owner, who was told by the workmen it would take three days to complete the job. The owner had no other option but to close the bar for the time being until he could find some planking as a temporary bridge.
The unfortunate woman was assisted out of the bar across the rubble.
