Thames Water has once again apologised after a huge sewage leak caused havoc in a Bucks village.

Several residents in Tylers Green saw human waste and used sanitary towels flow into their gardens, along with parts of a closed-off layby belonging to the Horse & Jockey pub.

The incident began in the early hours of Tuesday, July 18 when brown water started to appear from a sinkhole near the popular boozer, before it started to enter several properties along Church Road.

The problems worsened throughout the day when the smell of faecal matter began to surround the village.

Several calls to Thames Water were made, but they confirmed it would take up to 12 hours for an official to attend the scene.

One resident called the company ‘useless and very unhelpful’, whilst representatives from Buckinghamshire Highways, who were present in Tylers Green, urged Thames Water ‘to make this case a priority’.

Following the incident, a spokesperson told the Free Press: "We received reports of a leak on a waste pipe at Church Road in High Wycombe [Tylers Green] on Tuesday, July 18.

"We are sorry to residents who have been impacted by this issue.

“Clean ups of the affected areas are currently being arranged and we would like customers to know, our teams are working to resolve the issue as quickly and safely as possible.”
