  • Poorly organised and refuse to admit any fault. The man I spoke to, Keith, was absolutely not interested in listening to anything I said. Have no idea what he's doing there as he seems to loath interaction with people calling up. I know councils are strapped and overworked but it felt like he was gagging for a fight. If you have any complaints then go straight to the ombudsman because these guys (Keith) absolutely don't care.
