Re: The Guardian, "UK water firms admit using divining rods.

Sally Le Page declined a TV appearance with a water diviner. This is a quote from a tweet sent by Sally Le Page, posted 30th Nov. 2017: "Update: their angle was to have a VT of me in a field with a diviner trying to find a hidden water source. I didn't want to lend credence to an unscientific d...
