Serious star in BBC documentary
30th April 2014
Serious tanker and driver / fleet engineer Dave Tailford starred in the BBC documentary Watermen: A Dirty Business yesterday (29th April).
The show follows United Utilities workers in their challenge to keep clean water 'on tap' and sewers free flowing in the North West of England. Close ups of emptying a porta loo highlighted the strange things people put down toilets and drains, including a pair of shorts!
Filming took two days in and around the Kendal Calling site and United Utilities Willowholme Waste water Treatment Works, where the waste is sampled to ensure it is safe to be discharged for treatment.
