Labour employs blind highways inspectors

Anderson and Swindle wasting money on lazy or incompetent Slough Council staff

Report and photographs: Paul Janik

For more than 3 years, highways inspection staff employed by Slough Council have failed to notice the sunken mains water cover in the middle of a busy road, Slough Council claims it checks monthly for road defects.

In 2013 a tall flower protruded through the missing broken corner of the metal cover. This year, 2014, there is grass instead.
