ABOUT to wash up after Sunday lunch, we discovered we had a blocked sink drain. Investigation found a full manhole chamber in our back garden and water seeping from a manhole cover in the road.
This indicated a blocked main sewer drain so, at 2.30pm, I phoned the Anglian Water emergency number, spoke to a polite young lady on duty and, at 7.30pm, the man in the white van arrived.
Within minutes, he was working hard and was very informative, was thorough in cleaning up and kindly checked our manhole chamber to make sure all was clear.
He then left for his home in Waldringfield, leaving behind some very appreciative senior citizens all flushing merrily away.
So, a big thank you to Anglian Water for prompt action on a Sunday.
