Sewer Problems in Dartmouth Road

There is an ongoing issue in Dartmouth Road which centres around Paddy Power bookmakers. I'm suprised no-one else has commented here.
A blockage or possibly damaged drain somewhere means that RAW SEWAGE has been leaking out into the street. There is a huge puddle underneath the advertising hoarding which extends to Paddy Power's front door, and flows out into Dartmouth Road for the traffic to spread down towards Barclays.
The stench can be picked up before you reach Bunka, and vehicles splash unsuspecting passers by!
Environmental Health have apparently served a notice on someone- not sure who- but there is a dispute as to who is actually responsible. We have seen attempts with industrial tank thingys (a technical term of mine) to unblock it every couple of days for the past fortnight, but it seems fruitless.
An unnamed individual has contacted the South London Press, who have said they will be attending tomorrow- Tuesday- at around noon. Feel free to join them, but bring your own masks!
