HE has the ability to fly through the sky and float on water, but Captain Splosh dropped into a Fenland primary school to show children the importance of drinking.

The visit also gave children at Thomas Eaton Primary School, Wimblington, the chance to understand the work carried out by sewage treatment plants to make our drinking water as clean as it is.

Marcia Davies, educational control manager at Leighton Linslade sewage treatment works in Bedfordshire, visited the school on Friday afternoon on behalf of Anglian Water to talk through the process and show children what happens if they do not drink enough water.

She said: "We are trying to get our message across about what we do and what the role of Anglian Water is."
