A question of floods; Your Say.

ON AUGUST 19, 2008, myself and my neighbours had flood water in our houses. It has taken almost a year for the work to be carried out.

Then on July 17 this year, our homes have been flooded again.

I was looking forward to getting put straight after spending nearly a year living out of boxes.

With no cooker, fridge freezer or washer for months, I was finally hoping to get back to living normally again.

But it wasn't to be. I am now back to square one with everything in the downstairs of my property ruined.

I would like some answers please as to why this has happened twice in less than a year, but didn't happen the previous 20 years.

Would someone in authority, from the railway and the council, please come out and see for themselves the devastation it leaves behind once it has receded.
