Thames Water: Abbey Wood sewers are not to blame

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.

"We have been monitoring our sewers in the area and they are working as they should. Tests carried out on the floodwater in October suggest that this is groundwater that has not been able to drain away."
