image for Athlete's Villages Unfit. Plumbers called in.
Pole Vault in Athletes Village

Britain has come out to criticise the next Commonwealth Games, we can exclusively reveal.

The group of athletes representing the UK are ready for the Games, but aren't prepared to stay in Athlete's Village until a plumber has been called.

In what could be one of the last Commonwealth Games following Australian and Canadian tiredness of not winning anything, the inspectors arrived to discover the village was flooded.

"We'd need our boats here. At least we could practice for the Oxford/Cambridge boat race!" an inspector joked as he took off his scuba gear.

In response, Britain has sent some of our best plumbers to handle the problem. Top plumber Des Wallace had this to add:

"It's gonna be a piece of cake. We'll have the plumbing sorted in about six weeks. I just hope they have plenty of tea and cake for us all!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
