Camden Council has been quizzing Thames Water about why their pipes burst, according to the Camden New Journal, and the answer is they don't know. That is disappointing as Brent suffers from this problem routinely and a real answer would be reassuring.
This was done via one of Camden's scrutiny committees. I have never understood why Brent does not use its Scrutiny system in a similar way to the one that Camden use theirs, as my understanding is that it has powers to question about the use of public money anywhere in the Borough.
However, I can't help but notice that the Camden meeting struggled to get a quorum so things are not perfect there either.
