THE Fly in the Ointment (Warrington Guardian, November 4) highlighted the issue of sewage overflows and the impact of water company activity on the environment.

It’s obvious that this is not a priority for United Utilities – they advertise ‘water for the north west’.

In light of the well publicised issue of illegal sewage discharges, perhaps they should re- paint their vans ‘water for the north west and sewage for north west rivers’.

Unlikely that they’ll re-brand – but it is a catchy and true tag-line.
