INVESTIGATIONS have been carried out into the source of a mysterious water leak in West Caister
Engineers from Anglian Water traced the problem to a private or surface water sewer in West Road.
Last week's Mercury reported that retired farmer Fred Rose had been campaigning for action to be taken to deal with the problem.
A stream of effluent had been pouring down the road which runs from the village to the Caister bypass.

He said: “Anglian Water sent along two guys to investigate the problem and they said it was sewerage. I hope the problem can be repaired as soon as possible.”
