You take a few days off, and as part of your trip, you do a guided tour to Chenobyl. And this is what you're subjected to when you return to your office..........

One month today, I'm seeing performing at Blenheim Palace; I can't wait! I've been a huge fan since their debut album, The Hurting, in 1983. They're a 'proper' band. Please give us a wave 😉

It is a misconception that sprinklers cause more damage than an actual fire. Sprinklers actually contain or extinguish fires when they are very small and so use a lot less water than a firefighter's hose!

Only the sprinkler head(s) directly affected by the intense heat from a fire is triggered. Sprinklers do not cause flooding in buildings as depicted in some movies.

The quicker the Government realise how effective sprinklers are and change the law the safer the public will be . They don't have to waIt all the evidence is here now

Just happened to be in Kiev when the inauguration of President Volodymyr Zelensky was taking place. He walked right passed us, surrounded by security guards.

Two thirds of Londoners say they would feel unsafe in a highrise block of flats which didn’t have sprinklers. During National Sprinkler Week – we’re calling on the Government to take action. We want to see a change in the law on sprinklers

Yes, the tour talks a lot about what the firefighters did and it stops at the firefighter memorial. They were true heroes.

This is what I call precision engineering. The world's largest moveable structure.

The new Safe Confinement Structure was placed over the damaged Reactor 4 at Chernobyl, in October 2017.

Fascinating but really eerie visiting the abandoned town of Pripyat, the nearest town to the Chernobyl power plant.
