A HOUSING estate at Culcheth was today flooded for the second time in a couple of weeks.
Roads on the Mee Brow estate were under water – and a traffic island completely submerged – after heavy rain.
Angry residents are demanding action to prevent further floods.
Culcheth and Glazebury parish councillor Sue Bland said: “This is outrageous. It’s the second time it has happened in the last couple of weeks.
“It has been a long-standing problem but it has never been as bad as this before. I don’t know what the cause of the problem is, other than that the drains obviously can’t cope with the amount of rain that’s coming down.
“The parish council has been in touch with the borough council, but they don’t seem to be able to sort out the problem.
“But it is terrible for local people and it is time something was done.”
A Warrington Borough Council spokesperson said “The council is currently on site and are working with United Utilities to rectify the problem. We are dealing with an ongoing issue and have commenced an investigation into the exact cause of the flooding.”
