Sewage problems in Theale High Street appear to be fixed

I checked with the worst affected resident yesterday to find that the problem had not been solved. Thames Water hod told her that there was nothing wrong with the pumping station (that their operatives had previously blamed) and advised her to call the Environment Agency Floodline. The latter was completely inappropriate as there was no flooding in the area.

I therefore called Thames Water and asked them to investigate whether there was a sewer blockage, which they agreed to do urgently.

I checked again with the resident today. The sewage has stopped leaking and "two lads" from Thames Water had arrived this morning to clear up and put down disinfectant.
