Anglian water have proposed with the backing of other water supply companies to restrict the flow of water to customers who refuse to pay their bills.  Stressing that those with real difficulties were not to be affected by the proposal.  They are looking to clamp down on the £150M debts that have been accumulated.

Speaking on Radio Four’s You and Yours on Wednesday, Andrew Mackintosh, of Anglian Water, said: “The whole point of it really is having a deterrent, that’s what we don’t have at the moment.”

Mr Mackintosh said there was a distinction between customers who struggled to pay their bills and those who outright refused to do so.
