What happens after you tell the local press and MP that Thames Water has left water flooding down a street since the start of the year…

Pure coincidence, you understand, and not part of a pattern at all, that after copying in the MP and local papers, the scene in this photo replaced all the previous insistences that nothing can be done to speed up a repair despite water flowing all the way down a fairly steep hill, not to mention the sequence of mistaken claims that the leak had been fixed when it hadn’t:

What used to be a path half covered in water flowing down to the street at its end and then down the hill all the way to the main road where it formed nice big pools ready for vehicles to splash all over the pavement is now just an expanse of dryness.
