The council said the officers found sewage fungus visible from Colwell Brook into Queen Emma’s Dyke.

Thames Water said some wastewater was allowed to overflow to prevent flooding to homes.

A spokesman for the firm added: “Of course this is undesirable, but we only do it when there is literally no alternative.

“It is the way the system is designed to operate and is permitted by the Environment Agency under these circumstances.”
