You won’t be surprised to know that Watery Lane is flooded – more bad times for the people who live there. But it’s been a dreadful day across our district. Homes flooded, roads flooded, roofs letting in water, fish escaping from garden ponds, road surfaces damaged and debris been carried downstream….
Where can we attribute blame?
Over-development in some areas?
Are drains and ditches being maintained properly?
Too many gardens being hard-surfaced?
