Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble

A blocked ditch sent water flooding through John and Margie Histed's £1 million home in England. They spent eight months and £250,000 fixing the place. But more than a year after the flood, they still can't go back in. Why? The ditch is still blocked, and it still sends water into the house. They can't unblock it because they've found a great crested newt, which is protected under British and European Union law, in the ditch. No one can legally capture it, kill it, or disturb its habitat.
