Rotherham MP backs global water campaign

SARAH Champion posed in a Victorian street setting outside Parliament to mark 150 years of modern sewers in Britain.

Charity WaterAid was highlighting its call for the Government to lead the way in ending the global water and sanitation crisis.

The Rotherham MP said: “It has been eye-opening, seeing what life was like in Britain when people lacked access to safe water and there was no decent sewerage system.”

WaterAid chief executive Barbara Frost said: “Our own history shows how water and sanitation can transform a nation.”
