It was taken down, however I copied it.

So you're probably all aware by now of the fire in the cave near the crematorium. I was trapped inside there.
Whilst I was in ocean views in the past I noted that the electricity lines were being ran from the main grid illegally into the cave; seeming to look like our energy was being stolen.
After seeing it a few times I decided to go in, this is wrong on so many levels, I thought; what are they leaching the power for - we all work very hard and pay a lot of money for our electricity.
The first time I went into the cave was in April time. It was pretty shocking what was in there with broken sheds filled with gnarly equipment, filled with litter, electricity lines running all the way through.
I literally just went to check it out. I explored every inch of the cave and got to a big metal fence. It was rusted and gnarly and people came to block me in so I had to call the police to escape.
Determined to find out what's going on I returned to the cave.
What I saw this time was horrifying.
I saw a plethora of bullets in one of the caverns that wasn't there before. I handed the bullet to a senior police officer who immediately told me these were from recent Royal Marines training missions. I'm not sure I believe this as the bullets were far too small to be the L85 bullets typical of a Royal Marines Infrantyman, and they were too long to be pistol bullets for their standard issue pistols. They were very skinny and old school bullets; like hunting rifle bullets.
The police said that then said to another officer to throw it in the bin. It'll be on their bodycams.
A bunch of new caverns had been built, some widened. Some new holes in the ground that led to further makeshift underground tunnels.
I saw what looks like a makeshift crude oil bomb (photo'd).
I progressed through the cave until I got to the metal fence again.
It's a decent 12 or 14ft, with just a 25cm opening at the top. I climbed it and crawled through in darkness.
What I then saw next was honestly one of the most traumatic moments of my life. There was a load of rubbish and recycling bins. Ok fine.
I progressed through and saw all the energy lines being leached from the road led to a power station marked Gib Laundry next to the reverse osmosis plant. I thought that's strange. These power lines run from the street, through a private side into a government part - the screenshot linked says there's no power source but any police who've been inside will see what I've mentioned on their bodycams.
Interestingly, reverse osmosis makes soft water, which is good for laundry, but bad for humans as it's lacking in calcium and magnesium - this contributes to weaker bones, especially in women making it significantly likelier for women to develop osteoporosis.
Contrary to popular belief hard water is much higher in natural minerals and thus better for humans to drink, however it's more costly to pipe as you need expensive copper piping to maintain this otherwise the minerals will clog the pipes.
Hard water also tastes better; but unfortunately it's usually laced with flouride which calcified the pineal gland.
So I thought this is really weird, this must be government property, but the electricity is being stolen from the street.
Why are we paying taxes if they are just going to steal from us on top of it lol.
I went further into the cave next and what I saw next made my heart sink to my feet. Someone had recently set fire to one of the storage rooms; this room contained a significant amount of plastic panelling similar to the extremely flammable paneling used on Grenfell tower.
If this was used on buildings in Gibraltar it could have killed hundreds of innocent Gibraltarians.
I ran back the way I came in and tried to climb the fence two more times. I couldn
It was significantly harder this side as this time there was no footholds on this side - you can come in, but you can't leave kind of vibe.
It's a big climb you have to climb entirely using your upper body. I could get to the top, but once at the top you need to use your core strength to lift your legs above your head to escape through this 25 cm gap above in pitch black. I tried swinging my legs up like monkey bars but I just couldn't do it and I fell both times and got pretty cut up and my muscles were beat up.
After two attempts I began to panic.
I began running around the cavern to find other exits. The front exit leading to outside was again a big metal gate.
The air flow in this cave is intense pushing air from behind the fire directly towards the main entrance.
The risk of a fireball hitting the electricity leeching station was high.
If that happened, all that would be left of me would be my bones and the risk of an electrical fire with the dampness of the cave, the strong consistent airflow, the intense plastic fire and electricity could have made an explosion that would have been incredibly dangerous.
I changed my priorities and decided the electricity was the biggest priority. I insulated myself with some nearby dry wood pallets and tried to cut off the power to no avail.
I went to check on the fire and it was an inferno.
The whole cavern was lit up in tiger orange and the air was thickening with plastic smoke.
I had no choice, so I ran beyond the fire to the further storage chambers, I saw what looked to be a brand new shed in one with the doors closed shut. I didn't have time to investigate as time was ticking. I guess the firefighters/police will need to inform us what was in there.
There were more storage rooms, the environmental department for Gibraltar section was filled with refuse.
There was no escape this way. I was incredibly tired at this stage and panting hard. I went back towards the reverse osmosis plant and found some plastic cylinders. Panting heavily I dragged them about 25 meters uphill past all the rubbish/recycling bins and brought it to the fence but it's on a slope so they didn't even stand up.
I ran back to check on the fire.
It was seriously burning now; the fire was huge.
I ran back to the fence. Took some deep breaths and squatted for a second to rest.
I thought, fuck i'm about to be burned to death a fireball is coming any second now.
I tried with all my might to get into the gap, I got to the top again using my upper body and kept swinging my legs desperately to get up and fell down really hard.
I was cut up and grazed but it was my muscles and my lungs that were really suffering now.
I called someone I know in the police who called the fire service as it was the quickest method of communication to save me googling the number etc.
I had no choice, so I went to the front entrance and shouted for help.
A guardian angel appeared, I shouted some words in Spanish along the lines of 'danger' 'help' 'fire' and did some charades whilst shouting fireball in Spanish.
A few minutes later, I was desperate and nearly in tears but couldn't cry because of the adrenaline; but the guardians angels colleague, another guardian angel (bless you both, thank you so much ) found a metal saw and cut the padlock out freeing me from a fiery end.
I thanked the men over and over and collapsed on the floor exhausted, finally breathing fresh air. The man who cut the padlock kindly gave me some water and I just sat there exhausted until the emergency services arrived.
I would just like to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone who helped me that day. You truly saved my life. From the guardian angels, to the brave emergency services personnel for putting out the fire, helping me with my wounds and supporting me afterwards.
You are all absolute heroes and heroines and I owe you my life.
I hope you're all doing ok and thank you so much. I love you all.
