Flooding hits Weston-super-Mare homes
PUBLISHED: 09:25 01 June 2018
Flash flooding has caused damage to properties in Weston-super-Mare, after heavy rain fell overnight (Thursday).
At 5.20pm yesterday two fire crews from Weston attended a block of flats in Park Place.
Every floor of the three-storey building had been affected by flooding so firefighters used salvage sheets to divert water and used a turn table ladder to inspect its roof.
They carried out first aid on a man aged in his 80s but no further medical treatment was needed.
Then at 5.35pm, one crew was called to a house in Clovelly Road after a conservatory was affected by flooding.
The crew cleared drains using chimney rods and pumped water out of the property.
A Met Office amber warning for rain remains in place today.
