    • In fact if you would be interested in talking to the press, please send me an email to our admin email address with your contact details – name, address, telephone. I will see this all in confidence but I will try to forward it to a press contact. Companies like United Utilities really don't want this kind of exposure and if your MP got involved and also it was a story in the press, you would find that they would be a lot of anger and it would press them to start moving themselves rather more quickly
    • I've reread your thread from the start, and before we go any further two important questions.   1.  NCP start off by sending their demands to the company, then after a while the letters are addressed to you.  How did this happen?  To be blunt, did you write to NCP and tell them you were the driver?   2.  Do motorists have to input their registration number when they pay at this car park?
    • I'm troubled that you haven't started to discuss quantum yet – at least with your solicitor. Liability is slamdunk so the only question that large is that of quantum. Also, I don't really understand why it is you who are trying to save costs by getting government agencies involved which don't necessarily move very quickly – when the liability is entirely United Utilities and it is they who ultimately will bear the cost of everything. Have you invited them to get involved with clearance? Have you had a full survey of the site by an independent surveyor and if so have United Utilities been given an opportunity to have a look, to comment on your survey and carry out their own independent survey for comparison or corroboration? I have to say that what you seem to be saying about United Utilities bearing asbestos on your land seems to be so scandalous that one of the things I would do is I will try to expose it and I will contact your local member of Parliament. Write to them and then attend the surgery and explain what has happened and explain that a utilities company has been polluting land within their constituency and you need help to deal with it. I can imagine that this is the kind of thing that a member of Parliament would seize upon because it's an easy kill, totally uncontroversial – and extremely popular. Have you spoken to the local newspapers? They love that kind of story. Where are you in the country?
    • Chris Whitty on Twitter earlier.   'COVID-19 cases are rising and winter is drawing closer.   1) If you have not been vaccinated, now is the time. 2) If you are offered a booster please take up the offer. 3) Ventilation, masks in crowded indoor spaces and hand washing remain important.'   What about schools, offices, etc, amongst others?
    • Thank you for your quick reply.   There has been no discussion regarding quantum at all, although discussions have been very limited, we appear to be awaiting the actions of Env Health as this helps a long way in saving costs.   If we were to proceed now we would be looking to prove the land contaminated and employing specialists, etc, so the Solicitor has advised its best to use Env Health to do this and save some costs which allows more for the litigation should it be needed.   We have no idea with regard to a value for this and will look to the Solicitor for advice.   Our actual costs will I think be possibly round about the £5k mark   I think based on your reply the way forward is to discuss all these elements fully with the Solicitor   Your comments have been extremely helpful and have cleared up alot of questions I had.

Does anyone know what the current position with the Egg takeover by Citigroup is? Have all accounts been sold to Citigroup or are some still being handled by Egg (perhaps those in arrears/disputes etc)?? Has anyone had formal notification that their credit card/loan passed to Citigroup by deed of assignment perhaps?
