Congratulations Bograt - I hoped that would keep everyone scratching their head a bit longer !  :thumbsup:

Fulk,  'Yo' was 'Bush greeting' in honour of Dubya's greeting to Tony picked up by a hot mike at a the start of a press conference: "Yo, Blair"  *

Anyway, back to you once again, Bograt

Percy's Resurgence Cave is a well known cave of great potential (not) in Miller's Dale. I take it you haven't seen the classic (of it's type) late 60's film Percy starring Hywel Bennett.
You might have detected a bit of desperation regarding this one. Any more clues?

Why would it be?

OK, a clue;
  COPD, letters = 2, 8, some dispute whether its a mine, cave or pot so that is not included in the clue.

I'm still baffled with the 'clue'; where does COPD come from?

Is it Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease [Cave]?
