Thames water exploded into action tonight in Herne Hill with heavy machinery hammering into the street to repair another burst water main... With excruciatingly load machinery Thames Water started digging up the street tonight at 9pm to fix another burst pipe and flood in the Pizza Express basement.
Workers on site claim this has to happen now as it is an emergeny (Despite stating the flood has been there for 3 days..) Residents were told to expect noise ''until at least midnight if we are lucky and find the leak straight away...''
Complaints can go straight to Thames Water at 0800714614 - good luck... let's hope it's not as bad as last time...
