Cottage left without water for weeks after blunder

Have your say

Anglian Water has been criticised for turning up late and then leaving a cottage without water for almost two months.

During the redevelopment of Wing Hall Trust’s Charlotte Cottage into one-bedroomed flats, the trust prepaid £6,000 for the water supplier’s services only for nobody to turn up on the day agreed.

And when workers did turn up they connected the house to an obsolete main without water. A furious Malcolm Oliver, from the trust, said last week: “We have no way of telling people when our flats will be available and continually let others down.”
