    Agree - shoot the brickie, and the neighbours whilst you're at it. This will make little difference and looks terrible. Totally dependent on wind direction. Are we assuming the gasses will just float out in a straight line? :p

    Side note - why did they even take so much brickwork out anyway, and not just core drill for the flue?!

    Side side note - the periscope's not even vertical, correct?

    It's replaced an old big flue by the looks of it, we've got similar since they replaced our decades old boiler.

    Haha! That's just as bad as before, for the neighbour :D

    I'd definitely rotate the top, otherwise it just looks like you're taking the ****.

    No wonder BG charge so much if they have to call in another tradesman just to fill in a few bricks. Most of the plumbers I have come across just fill the bricks in themselves and do a better job of it.

    Surprised nobody has said this yet, but do your neighbour and brickie have letterboxes? If so, you know where to divert the flue fumes to. ;)

    LOL, I'm not sure whats worse the periscope or the bricks surely just a small right angle pointing left along the wall would've done?
