Burghfield allotment sewage spill cleared up

Help

A clean up operation is under way at an allotment site in Berkshire that was flooded with raw sewage on Christmas Eve.

Gardeners in Burghfield say the spill need never have happened in the first place, if Thames Water had acted after a series of earlier discharges from their network of pipes.

Thames Water said it understood the allotment holders' concerns and was working hard to clear the spillage.
