FEARS that a building programme along a historic Suffolk street would overload the sewerage system were flushed clean away today, as worried residents were assured experts had been consulted.

Concerned Sue Angland, 49, who lives at the bottom of Benton Street in Hadleigh has suffered foul waste rising up through the manhole covers in her garden in the past – and was worried that a proposed plan to build more houses near-by would lead to further trouble.

Babergh District Council however has now passed outline planning permission for the scheme and assured the worried homeowner that Anglian Water had been consulted and voiced no objection to the building project.

A spokesman for Babergh District Council said that new building projects putting pressure on sewerage systems was a problem throughout the county but when consulted about this particular application Anglian Water had assured the council that the system was "adequate".
