This is a recurring problem. There is sewage rising through the crown of the road on Main Street, at the junction with St Andrews close. It suggests that there is once again a blockage under the newly fitted manhole cover. The last time it was checked and cleared a camera was used to check everything out. The workmen said that the camera only got a little way across the road and came against what appeared to be a water pipe…….from when the main was renewed perhaps? There are children from the school crossing the road in this area and it is close to our village shop. It is smelly now and the weather is due to get hotter. Please help.
