PEOPLE were having to side step sewage in Lindley after a drain blocked and overflowed.
Part of Lidget Street was overflowing with sewage water, from the library to the junction of Thomas Street, yesterday.
It seems the blocked drain meant sewage and rain water built up on the roadside. Neighbouring drains were covered with leaves, leading to pools of sewage and water building up where cars were parked.
Tajinder Singh said: “I went into the hairdressers and 20 seconds later it was all coming down.
“I went out and I got splattered and it’s all over my car. Raw sewage was flowing down the street quite fast. You can’t even walk, it’s covering the whole street.”
Dave Hinchliffe said: “It smells horrible, I could cope with the water, but the smell is just awful.
