On the 1st of October there was a major thunderstorm accompanied by very heavy rain in the Valley. It was reported that this may have been the heaviest rain in many years and resulted in Valley Road being awash and householders again having water pouring down their drives and into the garage. Amazingly, the very heaviest rain only lasted twenty minutes, so we can be thankful it wasn’t for any longer.
As you can see from the pictures below, in addition to the large amount of water on the pavement on the east side of Valley Road, the ditch on the west side struggled to get the water away.
BCC have been made aware of the problems faced that day and will be visiting to discuss with affected householders.
