HCL have had to employ a security guard at night after travellers moved in next door to our lorry unit.
HCL have experienced numerous problems since the travellers arrived – including a colleague who was bitten by a dog and damage to our vehicles at the unit.
Concerns have been raised about lorry access
The caravans first appeared on Wednesday last week but since then more have arrived bringing the total up to about 12.
Assistant to the managing director, Lawrance Butterworth, 52, from Haywards Heath, said: “The problems started [on Monday] after one of our guys got bitten by a dog and had to go to hospital for jabs. One of the guys’ cars got damaged yesterday
“There has been children running down the road and people urinating. There’s been human excrement, dog excrement and broken glass.”
“We are having problems getting our trucks out and I witnessed a child running behind one of the trucks.”
“We have had to employ a security guard. It is getting out of hand.”
“What’s annoying is the inability of the local authority to do anything about it.”
“For us, from a business point of view, we pay our business rates and the council don’t seem to want to take it seriously.”
A spokesman for Sutton Council said they were working to ensure the travellers were moved on as quickly as possible while meeting their safeguarding, welfare and legal obligations.
They added: “The council is required to make provision and respond to the needs of the travelling community but we recognise that some Traveller activities can cause concern to local residents.”
Children play in the street
Over the past few weeks you can’t have escaped the press coverage that has surrounded the now infamous fatberg lurking under Kingston, southwest London. If you have then you’ve most probably been hiding down a sewer yourself! The supposed ‘bus sized’ fatberg could have potentially pushed raw sewage up into homes and onto the streets of Kingston but how has this been allowed to happen?
Weighing in at a reported 15 tonnes this mount of congealed fat, oil and grease mixed with other revolting waste products was brought to the attention of local water authorities after local residents complained about having difficulty flushing their toilets. But how can its weight have been calculated when it hadn’t even been removed. Surely the actual weight of a fatberg cannot be decided properly until the job is complete?
Subject to contrary belief we believe the fatberg is yet to be fully removed and in fact weighs a lot less than 15 tonne. Without the necessary equipment and technical know-how the removal of this particular fatberg will take a lot longer than expected, all the while still causing problems for local residents. Time and investment are an essential requirement when it comes to preparing yourself to undertake such specialist works. Megatron is a textbook example of this.
Megatron was commissioned back in 2008 when Hydro Cleansing invested over half a million pounds engineering this wastewater monster to our own personal spec. From our perspective we had three main objectives we wanted to achieve:
- Increase the capability of a single onsite vehicle, which also reduces our environmental impact and carbon footprint
- Cope with the inevitable migration from planned to reactive works
- Time efficiency, reducing job turnaround times
With Megatron now undertaking works that were previously relinquished, and with more units in the pipeline, Hydro Cleansing are more than capable of embarking on any major works or specialist projects all the while alleviating any concerns that the job is to big or can’t be done at all.
