Oxfordshire village of Caulcott suffers ongoing sewage problem

Residents in an Oxfordshire village are living with a recurring problem of sewers spilling their contents into the street.

People in Caulcott near Upper Heyford have seen their sewers overflow after heavy rainfall every year for nearly a decade.

Tankers have been in the village working round-the-clock to pump out the excess, a move Thames Water says is more cost effective than working to put the problem right.
