  • The Gullies on Henry Street have been checked twice in the last 10 weeks, some minor litter found but no blockages and or standing water. It must be noted their is a Combined Anglian Water Sewer (takes surface and foul water) and at times these can omit smells through the manhole covers in the road, if this is regular occurrence we recommend you contact Anglian Water on 03457 145 145 and ask if they can disinfect their combined manholes.

    State changed to: No further action
