Thanks to you both for your suggestions. Special thanks to you beetroot. I used your link and e-mailed my complaint off.
I felt a bit more positive as I was writing my complaint knowing that they have to reply within 10 days, and that I can take the matter further if they don't.
billiangel I tried calling my local councillor yesterday and today. Left messages but no reply. I hope that this is because she is away for the bank holiday weekend. I would be very disappointed if she shows the same reluctance to help that I have found is the norm from other Southwark Council
To give you an update someone called round yesterday from Southwark Council
's Highways Division. His reaction was that the raw sewage leak was a disgrace and someone really has to do something about it, but guess what?, it wasn't going to be him as this did not fall under his department's jurisdiction.
It would be funny if it wasn't so serious,
Thanks once again to you both.
