Unbearable stench of sewage

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

I recently moved to Greenwich approx 2 weeks ago. After spending a few nights at my new flat, I noticed a foul smell of rotten sewage / sulphur. It made me gag! I immediately contacted my landlord believing it to be blocked drains. He sent contractors out to ‘rod’ the drains but the stink still continued. And just last night & this morning I’ve been woken up by the same almighty stink. It’s running all throughout the flat and is giving me a terrible headache. This was when I decided to google online & report to the council & have found others reporting similar stories around Greenwich. Surely this is a safety hazard?? Another plumber is returning in a few days to replace a section of the internal waste pipe, but it appears this is part of a much bigger problem?
