There is a burst pipe that was sorted and there was a hole with a yellow plastic warning stand, which has fallen over and the hole is now full of water and people who are quequeing by National Breweries, are collecting water to drink. It is a health hazard. Please could it be sorted out as a matter of urgency.

  • This has not yet been sorted out. The yellow beacon that warns that there is a hole, is now broken. People who are quequeing for beers, are using the leaking water to wash their fruit, clean their cars etc. Please could this burst pipe be sorted out and hole filled in as a matter of urgency. It has been like this for close on 4 months no.
