Downpours cause flash flooding in Wellesbourne

Leamington Editorial 10th Jan, 2020   0

FLASH floods have caused chaos for residents in Wellesbourne.

Firefighters were called to a flooded home yesterday (Thursday) after drainage ditches overflowed, affecting the nearby property.

The road was closed to prevent bow waves from cars as the crew helped the owner set up a pump.

The team was then called to a marooned car in flood water. The driver and a passenger were able to leave the vehicle safely which was recovered by the crew.
