No water forces man to pub toilet

Argyle Bar, Derry
Mr Bradley has to use the toilets in a nearby bar

A man from Londonderry has said he has to go to the toilet in his local pub because he has no running water.

Martin Bradley has had no water at his home in Argyle Terrace since it was turned off by a contractor in order to repair a burst pipe in January.

"I've been going to use the toilet at the pub across the street, but I have to wait until it opens," he said.

NI Water said they received a completed application form about the replacement of lead piping at on 17 June.

"Now that this form has been received, NI Water will respond to this request within 14 calendar days."

Mr Bradley's water was turned off by a separate contractor in order to fix a burst pipe.

The lead piping in his home needs to be replaced, and an application must be made to NI Water in order to do so.
