Every year in spring raw sewerage pours out of my grease trap all over my front courtyard right in front of my front door. This is because the conifer on the corner has grown into the main and we are the house at the bottom of a recess in the street. Every year the council turns up, cuts the roots in the main, cleans up the mess, and leaves. Every year my whole household gets sick immediately after this happens. This year my children both went on to get pneumonia after a nasty primary infection. I would like the main dug up and repaired and/or the roots of the tree cut back from the main so it does not happen again.
