Thank goodness – residents of Warberry and Cumberland Road have finally been getting compensation from Thames Water for the damage caused after Thames doubled the water pressure without warning following the replacement of a water mains.
The result? Numerous leaks and serious damage – including a burst boiler causing a ceiling to collapse. At first Thames dodged accepting responsibility, but now they’ve agreed to pay up.
(If you’ve experienced similar problems following replacement work, just get in touch with my office on 020 8340 5459.)
