Firms in Scotland could soon be buying water from a supplier other than Scottish Water.
A new business deal announced yesterday could see Thames Water wedge a crowbar into the tightly sealed market north of the border.
It is backing a new business run by Scottish-born entrepreneur John Wyllie, called Water24, which is hoping to offer customers slightly cheaper deals on their H2O.
Currently Scottish Water’s retail arm, called Business Stream, supplies 97% of the 157,000 companies in Scotland which pay water rates.
