Much of March left underwater following heavy thunderstorms

There have been calls for action after many parts of March were left flooded by a heavy thunderstorm yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.

Blocked gullies, filled in dykes and potentially broken pipes have been blamed for the spate of floods which hit streets right across the town from Russell Avenue, to Knights End Road.

Among those hit were Alpha Street where one resident, who was forced out of her home for many months following flooding six years ago, said the rainwater was close to coming through her door again yesterday.
