The most fun miners have had since the Road to Wigan Pier.
Hotbedding: the practise of shift workers taking turns to sleep in the same bed as they change shifts. Apparently happening in mining towns when insufficient infrastructure and housing is provided for a sudden influx of workers. 
And it's not just the miners who are doing it tough. DH heard at National Shelter's policy launch that long-standing residents of the new mining towns are also being squeezed out of their homes by the sudden rise in prices.
