Friday 13th experience!

A 90-YEAR-OLD council tenant has been left with no hot water or central heating after a nightmare Friday 13th experience.

Castle Kennedy resident Maggie Clannahan was devastated when her hot water tank burst two weeks ago on Friday, 13th September.

But matters have since gone from bad to worse as almost two weeks later Mrs Clannahan is still living in her Aird Crescent semi-detached bereft of heating and hot water.

She has been reduced to having a wash in water boiled in the kettle.

And to add to the widow's dismay, council officials have said she may have to put up with the inconvenience for a further seven days.

Speaking to the 'Free Press' on Tuesday ten days after her tank burst an angry Mrs Clannahan said

"I was supposed to be a priority, but I have been waiting for ten days now and there is still no sign of a new tank.

"The house is freezing at night-time and I am full of the cold.

"Any washing I have to do is with boiled water and I am sick of it, I have told the council that if anything was to happen to me they will get sued!"
