THE worst of the flood damage seems to be behind North Somerset, after the district experienced a quiet Monday night.

Following the previous 24 hours, when almost a month’s worth of rain fell in the space of a day, much of the district had been badly affected by flooding.

But despite a yellow weather warning issued by the Met Office for last night going into today (Tuesday), Avon Fire and Rescue reported a quiet night with no fresh incidents of flooding.

Crews were called to a home in Kent Road in Congresbury at about 5.20pm to pump out water which had flooded the house during the previous night’s wet weather, but otherwise were not called to any incidents in North Somerset.

Now the attention has turned to cleaning up the damage caused by the floods, with villages across the region, from Congresbury to Wedmore, and Brean to Churchill all affected.
