Gainsborough residents were so intrigued to know what happens when they flush their loo, they went on a trip around the local sewage treatment works to find out.

Severn Trent Water opened the doors to the works because its £2m makeover to improve sewage treatment for the town had recently been completed so it was a perfect opportunity to let locals find out about the improvements and discover what happens after they’ve flushed.
