Prime Minster Jebb laid out the priorities "We need to solve this crisis in time for the Great Whernside Fell Race this Saturday, incorporating the Yorkshire Fell Championships"

Fortunately today (Thursday) it rained all day, averting the Bog Crisis for now.

Devine intervention ?
Devine intervention may have averted the Bog Crisis but will it have the last word on Saturday? Gary Devine's over from his Pyrenees-Haven and a 3rd place at last Sunday's Withins Skyline (behind Ian Holmes' 2nd and Helm Hill's Tom Addison's 1st) showed he's open for business. He'll definitely be useful for bolstering the Pudsey and Bramley team campaign - P&B won the team prize on Sunday at Withins.
