Plastic covers have come off Spalding’s iconic Chatterton Water Tower. Teams of workmen steam-cleaned a massive 4,000 sq metres of the tower’s surfaces before getting out rollers and paintbrushes to return the building to its gleaming best.

Some 400 25-litre cans of paint were used, equal to 10,000 litres.

An Anglian Water spokesman said: “The tower will be back to normal with all the scaffolding removed by the end of September.”
