As title says,

This morning we noticed the toilet was leaking from the bottom of it, water was coming from the handle & water is pouring out of the overflow at the side of the house. The floor board by the toilet are soaked & feel softer than else where in the bathroom.

I called the landlord early this morning told him & he had a go at me because ever since i moved in here a year a go i have told him there have been a number of repair's needed doing. He said he would get someone out but never said when.

Half a hour ago the water started leaking in to the kitchen via the light fitting, I called the shop where the landlord is the owner he was not there i speak to his wife who said she " that he has gone out & that she cant contact him but will tell him when he get back in"

Then we started hearing the light making a some crackling sounds, so iv had to switch the down stair's light s off at the fuse box.

So dose any one know if i can call someone to get it fixed as a emergency maybe on health & safety or fire risk grounds. Without billing me as i dont have the money to get it fixed myself.

my partner is worried about cooking any dinner 2night as we have a electric cooker, & with 5 kids to feed tonight need this sorting out asap
