Broken fencing concern as work on drains is ‘delayed’

Work that was due to take place on blocked drains in Biddulph has still not been completed, as concern were raised about the safety of some “sharp” broken fencing on the site.
The work, being undertaken off Newpool Road by water company Severn Trent, was due to have been completed three weeks ago, according to one local councillor, but the “long-winded process” is still not finished due to the age of some of the pipes.
Investigations on the combined surface water drain and sewer pipes began after a “strong smell” of sewage was reported in the area.
