  • I beg to differ. There is CLEARLY a leak as shown on the photo with this report taken on 13th March 2019. There is a drain cover that is clearly leaking water that has a 'scum' or film on it. If it is not rain water, or drinking water, it can only be foul water. If you inspected during wet weather then the leak is not visible. I dry weather it clearly is. As of today 4th April 2019, the cover is STILL leaking and running doiwn into the station access. Please take action.
