Heavy rains flood parts of Wirral this afternoon



HEAVY rains have flooded parts of Wirral this afternoon.

Lightning and hailstones accompanied the downpour, which occurred just after midday.

In Pensby, Margaret Williams, 66, brushed away the rainwater in the back garden of her Kenilworth Drive home.

The water-level had risen to her back door and her lawn was also covered in hailstones.

Mrs Williams told the Globe: "There was some bad weather forecast, but I didn't really expect hail.

"You don't expect this sort of weather in the summer."

Lynda Swapp, who lives in nearby Chatsworth Road, had returned from the shops and was forced to stay in her car until the heavy rain stopped.

She said: "The whole road was flooded, because I don't think the drains could cope."

Residents in Arrowebrook Road, Greasby, had their gardens flooded.

George Jones, 73, has lived there for 38 years and said this is the fourth time the area has been hit by floods.

He told the Globe: "The mains are not adequate enough for this sort of storm.

"The rain flows down the road into the brook, which ends up flooding.

"I think United Utilities should install new drains to cope with this problem."

The entrance to New Brighton Rugby Club in Reeds Lane, Leasowe, was also flooded because of blocked drains.

More heavy rain is expected tomorrow, with sunny spells and temperatures of up to 18 degrees from Wednesday.

Wirral MP calls for drains to be inspected following flash floods




A WIRRAL MP is asking United Utilities to inspect the drains in his constituency following flash floods earlier this week.

Stephen Hesford, MP for Wirral West, has been contacted by a number of concerned constituents in Rigby Drive and Arrowe Road, Greasby, whose gardens were flooded during the heavy rain on Monday afternoon.

He has asked United Utilities to examine whether or not local road drains are adequate, and if not to take remedial action.

Mr Hesford told the Globe: "Once again a number of my constituents have been severely inconvenienced by flash flooding after Monday's downpour.

"And so I have asked United Utilities to look into the cause of these problems and I hope that they are able to help prevent a further repetition of this, not least by seeing if the road drains are adequate."

George Jones, 73, has lived in Arrowe Road for 38 years and said it is the fourth time the area has been hit by floods.

He said: "The mains are not adequate enough for this sort of storm.

"The rain flows down the road into the brook, which ends up flooding.

"I think United Utilities should install new drains to cope with this problem."
