Major leak at St Catherine’s forces students to leave accommodation

first_imgStudents at the college have since confirmed that they have been provided with temporary heaters for their rooms. “PLEASE make sure you follow Covid regulations when moving over to your temporary room – keep your distance from others and wear a face covering. In a string of emails sent throughout the day, students at the college were told: Meal provision within the college has also been impacted, with no catering available to most students through to at least Tuesday. Those who are isolating will still be able to have food delivered to their rooms, although this will be “a frozen meal instead of a hot lunch”. Photo Credit: Kenneth Yarham. Licence:CC BY-SA 2.0. Students at St Catherine’s College have been forced to move to new accommodation following a “major leak” in the boiler room. The flood, which occurred in the early hours of Friday morning, required the attendance of the fire brigade to pump out water from the room. The college later confirmed to students that as a consequence of the leak, both the college’s heating and water supplies were damaged. Students in some accommodation blocks have subsequently been forced to move to temporary rooms until the faults can be fixed. “Do not worry about moving all of your things over today – moves can be complete by Sunday evening.center_img “Unfortunately it looks unlikely that we will be able to restore the water supply to Staircase 1 – 16 by the end of today. St Catherine’s has also promised to refund students’ Upay accounts for any meals which they had already booked and which will no longer be provided. Students in isolation who do not wish to receive a frozen (instead of hot) meal can also ask to be reimbursed. “Do not forget to check that all the taps in your staircase are turned off when you leave, this is to avoid possible staircase flooding, when the water does come back on!” “Staircase 17 – 19 is self-sufficient from a heating and hot water point of view, so I’ve made the decision to move the residents from Staircase 1 – 16,  who currently have no water, over to Staircase 17 – 19. “We have been working through the night to restore the college water supply after our main boiler house flooded.. “We will also be providing heaters to everyone in college as our central heating system will not be working for the foreseeable future. The heaters have been ordered and will be available for collection from the Lodge later this afternoon.last_img read more

Rams RB Todd Gurley denies his knee is still injured

first_imgTodd Gurley’s performance in the NFC championship game against the Saints was underwhelming, but he’s not willing to place any blame on his knee.Gurley, coming off a knee injury that caused him to miss the Rams’ final two regular-season games with inflammation, insisted he just had a substandard game and denied there are any lingering issues with his knee. Coach Sean McVay indicated earlier this week Gurley would receive more opportunities in the Super Bowl against the Patriots, but Gurley insisted he doesn’t care about any of the speculation or how many carries he gets. He said he’s focused instead on doing what’s best for the team. Gurley had a career-low five touches and gained 13 yards in the Rams’ 26-23 overtime win over the Saints. While there was some speculation Gurley aggravated his knee, the 24-year-old put those rumors to rest.“I’m good. If there was an issue on my knee, it would be on the injury report,” Gurley told reporters Friday. “Come on now. I’m at practice. I’m playing.” Related News “I don’t ask no questions. I just do my job,” Gurley said. “We got the win. That’s all that matters. I can not play one snap. I don’t care if [long snapper] Jake McQuaide is the Super Bowl MVP. I’ve got one more game left. I don’t care what nobody’s talking about. Y’all can call me hurt. Y’all can call me whatever, but we’re going to the Super Bowl.“What do y’all not understand? It’s not about me. This sport has never been about me. It’s never been about one player. Todd’s only going to be with the Rams so much longer. It’s going to be another dude that comes in just like me. This whole game is bigger than me. It’s not just about me. Why is Todd not getting the ball? Why is that? Because there’s only one football, and there’s 11 guys. Only one guy can touch the ball each time. It’s way bigger than me.”The Rams will face the Patriots in Super Bowl 53 on Feb. 3 with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m. ET. (CBS).
