But if they DO come to Southampton, then there will be one delivery to the Otterbourne Hill Water Treatment Works every ten days.
In parts of the USA, tankers containing fluorsilicic acid and travelling to water treatment works are considered to be such a terrorist risk that they must be accompanied by two vehicles - one in front, one behind - containing armed guards. So you can sleep easy in your beds . . . our splendid government has it all completely under control!
