MPs have abused the water companies over leaks. From my experience, these leaks are caused by heavy goods vehicles smashing mains.

In Strand Street, a water main under the road was crushed. When the main and the road were repaired, I had to pay plumbers on two occasions to remove the resultant grit from the pipes of my flat.

Juggernaut lorries were foisted upon us by European Union diktat, at the cost of billions of pounds in road damage, none of which was paid for by Europe. Good time to restore limits for the weight of vehicles allowed on our roads.
