Video: water bosses fail to enforce water leak

Have your say

A councillor has blamed Severn Trent Water for failing to deal with a very large leak from a property despite knowing about it since April.

The authority left a card at the house on Mansfield’s Harrop White Lane informing its landlord of his responsibilty to fix the leak but failed to follow that up with any enforcement, so the problem was overlooked.

Dennis O’Neill, Mansfield District Councillor for Broomhill ward, said the leak, caused by vandalism to an oustide toilet at the empty property, looked like a small stream and must have wasted thousands of gallons of water.
