SCHOOLCHILDREN were taken on a journey beneath the streets to investigate the deep, dark world of the sewer network that serves Portsmouth and surrounding towns.

Youngsters had a tour of Budds Farm, the water treatment works in Havant, as part of a city-wide education programme developed by Portsmouth Football Club’s Study Centre and Southern Water.

Clare Martin, director of community projects at Portsmouth Football Club, said: ‘Most children and many adults don’t think about what happens beyond the plug hole or the toilet but the journey comes alive and the children gain a real understanding of the implications that their actions can have.’
