Sewage smell coming from external drain entering house

Reported in the Smelly drain category anonymously at 19:17, Tuesday 28 July 2020

Sent to Westminster City Council less than a minute later


Hopefully you are the right people to email about this, if not, please could you let me know who to contact. I live at 51a Aylesford Street backing onto St George’s Mews (opposite number 95). For the past few weeks, when we have had the south side windows open, the breeze has been blowing in the smell of sewage from the drains by the windows. There are a number of small drain flies who have taken up residence on our windows because of this.

I went onto the mews to check the situation and the smell is definitely emanating from the drains behind my house.

If possible, please could somebody be sent out to clear the drain and investigate.

Kind regards, Tom Storey Angell
