That’s reflected in a 13.4 per cent fall in written customer complaints to water companies in England and Wales during 2014/15 – down from more than 123,000 to fewer than 107,000.

But we believe the gap between the best and worst performers remains unacceptable and will be challenging those companies to improve significantly.
