Im slightly frustrated as I have been in contact with TFL all week regarding the same issue - I was advised by TFL it wasn’t your issue & it was Thames water issue & you promised to get them out on Thursday as you could see how bad the issue was & the damage it was causing. I called again Friday as per your instruction and was assured Thames water would be sent out that morning. As of 6pm last night no one had been so I called Thames water myself to get them urgently out to the road/property. They advised they had received no case from you. They attended the road/property last night at 10pm to be advise me the issue is not Thames water but needed to be resolved by TFL as it’s an issue with the gully. As you are aware we have been unable to open silks bar/restaurant this week due to this issue - which is causing us a loss of earnings. Please can I ask that someone urgently call me & that a team attend today to resolve. We have been unable to open silks due to covid regulations - we were finally due to open on Monday & cannot due to the issue. Please can I ask that someone calls me urgently on 07825 351 318. We are due more rain this weekend which will mean further damage to a newly refurbished establishment. Thank you. Remy

Hi, this is a safety issue not only for the members of public stood at the bus stop or walking through the flooded parent but also for the property - if it rains anymore there is potential for this to go in to the properties electricity. I have been calling the emergency safety line contact number...pressing 6 then 9 then confirming again it’s an emergency safety issue by pressing # and the line cuts off & goes dead everytime so I am unable to speak to anyone as the phone line doesn’t seem to be working. This issue has been going on with TFL for 6 days. I need someone to come out and resolve this urgently this afternoon.
