Residents still in hotels after Upper Clapton flood
Days after gallons of flood water and muddy clay gushed into homes and gardens in Upper Clapton six residents are still living in hotels.
Thames Water is picking up the tab for the six residents whose homes are still uninhabitable after they were forced to abandon their homes when a 30 inch water main burst in Northwold Road.
At least one resident could face up to six months in rented property whilst structural damage caused by the force of the water running through brick work is put right.
Thames Water is sending loss adjusters round the 40 properties in Northwold, Alconbury and Norcott roads and to find out the value of the damage after the flood which happened last Thursday.
Rooms in basements were worst affected as gallons of flood water ran down Northwold Road and into adjoining streets.
Meanwhile work is continuing to fix the damaged mains pipe and repair a hole on Northwold Road and the number 106 bus service is on diversion.
Natalie Slater from Thames Water said: “Six people remain in hotel accommodation this week while suitable rental homes are organised. We are continuing to work closely with everyone who has been affected by this burst to help them get their lives back to normal as soon as possible.
