Mark Harris and Mark Watson have successfully represented the Environment Agency in an long running prosecution of Thames Water following a flooding incident in south London in 2003. Thames Water had been prosecuted and ordered to pay fines and costs of over £300,000 by a Magistrate’s Court in 2011.

Following the appeal which took place last week, the Crown Court rejected TWUL’s appeal, maintained the fines and increased the compensation orders paid to residents affected by the flooding which had led to escapes of raw sewerage over a period of 3 months in 2003.
