BT Openreach yesterday defended its decision to pump water into Witney’s High Street.

Witney resident John Barker contacted the Oxford Mail concerned that the drains in High Street were already full after spotting the workers pumping water.

BT spokesman Ian Read said: “The engineers were battling against very difficult weather conditions. They needed to pump out manholes and junction boxes to carry out their work.”
