Nasty smell coming from gulley outside No 87

We have had a problem with horrible smells since Thames Water 'fixed' broken sewer pipes a while back. They drained some horrible smelly brown water down the gulley when they were repairing a broken pipe. They have been back to check and the drains are clear. The smell seems to be coming from the gulley outside No 87 so wonder if what they pumped down is causing the problem. Could the gulley sucker come and clear it please?

  • This issue is not with Thames water but with national rail as swage water is leaking from railway embankment. This is a health hazard for residents of Bromley Council. Can you please take action to work with authorities to sort this out. This is what we pay council tax for!
