Market Rasen residents are to receive an apology from Anglian Water after night time drainage work was said to have kept many awake at night.

Noel Watling, of E.S Computer Services in Union Street, said the work started at 11pm and continued until 4am, keeping him awake all night.

“There’s at least another 50-60 people in the same station,” he told the Rasen Mail.

“I rung the police at 2.30am as my kids were screaming their heads off. I run a shop. I haven’t been to sleep. We haven’t received any notification.”

The drainage work is on Queen Street, by the entrance to Waverley Court and around Union Street.

Anglian Water issued a statement today, Wednesday March 11, apologising and saying there would be more work tonight.

“We would like to apologise to residents in Market Rasen for disruption caused during work to install a new mains water connection at Queen’s Street,” said spokesman Nik Shelton.

“We are writing to all residents nearby to explain the situation and to say sorry,” he continued.

“The work was originally planned during the day but this would have meant the closure of Queen’s Street – we moved it to night time work to avoid this.

“Work will take place again this evening to finish the job, however we will get it done as quickly as possible and we do not envisage any further work after that.”
