Oh God! What's it with Teddington? My road was dug up by them for almost a year solid. Not one of us smelt gas, apparently they prowl around with probes that can sniff the most minute amount of gas.

According to the gas company, the culprits were the Birmingham-based road re-surfacing company used on the cheap by Richmond Council.

Hearsay, Culverin! Also, presumably you have documentary evidence for "on the cheap", like having seen how much it cost and how much other companies would have charged?
