The slash and burn antics of PCC cabinet members cutting essential public works budgets probably put the public health of thousands of Peterborough Beer Festival visitors at risk. Unknown to the many thousands who visted the embankment site a major PCC owned sewer had collapsed in a street in Peterborough
Peterborough City Council officers allegedly hushed up the collapse, which would also have affected restaurant diners and visitors to the Key Theatre, as on Health grounds, claims an insider, the event should have closed down.
Emergency teams of CAMRA volunteers working at the festival were drafted in to tackle the problem of the disposal of raw untreated sewage. The details were revealed in a recent exchange of emails between a supplier and various CAMRA members.
"The sewer collapsed in the Street at Peterborough which is unfortunately a Council issue so whilst this reflects badly on the toilets and the event itself, it is actually something beyond anyone’s control on site....."
"I think if you understood what we were dealing with, you would realise that the supplies were the last thing on anyone’s mind. In truth the event should have probably been shut...."
No one at the council was prepared to comment. Clearly CAMRA lawyers may be seeking substantial compensation, unless of course the council makes an offer to settle first!
