Where is Philbert?

A magnificent red sky greets the early shift at the colliery. But alas nothing can happen for a while. Down the pub the night before, Pete thought he’d successfully bribed young Philbert to light up the engine so he could spend a few extra hours in bed. Alas Philbert is nowhere to be seen, the 8% rough cider and saucy Sandy the barmaid leading the young whippersnapper astray with her charms. Dud suggests they use the diesel, but as is always the case, Pete has ‘lost’ the key again. Pete always does this on Saturdays, a ploy to get in a few extra hours overtime whist they ‘search’ for the key. It looks like it’s going to be a long day, not helped by the fact that the diesel is 5 miles away undergoing maintenance.
