Another broken spring

Another example of a broken coil spring, this was on the rear of a 100,000 mile, 2003 Vauxhall  Astra, this one with the added bonus of an insufficiently supported brakepipe . Should the coil spring have fallen out of place, quite possible if the vehicle had been driven at speed over some of the local speed bumps, the brake pipe could possibly have been crushed/kinked or even the hose severed.
