Following the despicable incident, which the exclusively reported earlier this month, Severn Trent is reminding customers to always check the identity of callers to keep themselves and their property safe.Customer care manager at Severn Trent, Louise Moir said: "We can't stress how important it is for customers to check the identity of the person knocking on the door.Pb dating of a saltmarsh section from the mid-Severn Estuary has facilitated the construction of a chronology based on the temporal variation of commonly occurring pollutants, namely particulate coal dust, copper, lead and zinc.The chronology identifies three significant datum levels at 1958 ± 4 years, 1950 ± 4 years and 1933 ± 7 years, based on the temporal trends of pollutants within the sediment sequence.The sediment had been laid down in the estuary of a long-vanished river and subsequently been covered by sand, preserving its surface.The layer of sediment underlies a cliff on the beach, but after stormy weather the protective layer of sand was washed away and the sediment exposed.Severn Trent has issued a warning to customers after 80-year-old Colin Bennett, from Sutton Coldfield, was targeted in a distraction burglary.His late wife’s wedding ring was among the “irreplaceable” items stolen.
