Floods hit Woodborough and Lambley, again


10 July 2012 in Lambley

CONTINUING heavy rain has led to more floods in Woodborough and Lambley this afternoon.

Buses were diverted away from the villages at around 4-5pm, but from what we saw the main roads through the villages remained passable with caution. By 7pm waters had receeded leaving some large puddles and streams flowing in full spate.

    How can you allege roads were ‘passable’? The road through Woodborough wa
    s not passable for a good hour.

    The roads may have been passable but it is the wave that cars and buses create going through the water that causes the water to go into peoples homes that is why they close the roads.
