Iced Wee: Woman's caravan ruined as plane drops lump of frozen waste through its roofSWNS

A woman's caravan has been ruined after a lump of frozen wee fell from a passenger plane straight through the roof.

Caroline Guy, from Staffordshire, said she thought she was being burgled when she heard an "explosion" at 7am on Saturday.

She got up to investigate but found nothing out of the ordinary so went back to bed. It was only when she went to clean the caravan she keeps on her land that she saw the 18-inch hole in its roof, and found the yellow lump of ice.

Restaurant owner Ms Guy had lived in the caravan for two years while she built a barn conversion, and was in the process of trying to sell it for around £5,000. She says it is now worthless.

Caroline has been told that nobody is liable for the incident, but she feels this is wrong as she could have been "killed".

According to The Sun, she said: "It is just a miracle that neither myself nor my children were in there when it came crashing down - it could have killed someone.

"The caravan is a complete write off. I've checked with the Civil Aviation Authority and they say no-one is liable. But someone should be - I could have died."

The Mirror reports that she added: "It's incredible to think it nearly landed in our toilet when that's where it came from in a plane above us."

A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority said: "What happens is there is some sort of leak on the plane and a body of water builds up on the outside.

"When the plane is at height it freezes and then when the plane starts to descend it heats up and starts to thaw and falls off.

"The source of the leaks are one of three - the toilet facilities, the air conditioning or running water.

"These incidents are very rare but they do happen now and then."
