Residents anger as Tilbury tower block left with no running water

HUNDREDS OF angry residents at a Tilbury tower block were left without running water for over a day last weekend.

The problem started on Sunday morning at Freemantle House in Leicester Road, Tilbury.

The problem wasn’t solved until Monday afternoon.

A Thurrock Council spokesperson said: The leak was caused by a faulty valve on the main water tank on the top floor of the block.

“The water had to be turned off while repairs were carried out and a new valve was fitted, the work was completed at around 2pm yesterday.

“The council supplied emergency water bottles for residents which were distributed by concierge staff until the repairs were completed.”
