AS some Unsworth and Whitefield residents will be aware, we have had a number of leaks around Parr Lane in recent weeks and I have certainly been critical of United Utilities' response.

I was, however, very pleased with its strategy for the long-term remedy to this problem and found the drop-in session at Morrison's car park this week extremely informative.

I am now keeping my fingers crossed that United Utilities' solution will prove to be successful, but at least I now feel that progress is being made.
