Crossrail has said it is waiting for a report from an independent specialist into why the pitches at an Abbey Wood sports club have become waterlogged.
Thames Water has said the water that has flooded sports pitches in Abbey Wood has not come from their sewers. The pitches' owner has blamed nearby work on the Crossrail link for causing the flooding.
A sports club in South East London has said its flooded sports pitches have been caused by nearby works on the Crossrail link. Martin Masher, who owns the Seven Acre Sports Club, filmed this video of the waterlogged pitches.
He says the problem started seven months ago and he has been unable to get Crossrail to take action. The club has been unable to play any matches this season.
