1. Christmas Day 1986
Water engineers were working to repair this burst water main which shot 100ft into the air in Headingley. No homes lost supplies but water to thousands of properties was discoloured.
Protestors lobbied councillors to oppose plans to turn a former water pumping station into a pub. Bass Taverns and YW wanted to turn the site at the junction of Bennett Road and North Lane into a pub with parking for 72 cars.
