Praise The Lord! Hereford Futures to the rescue! I bet it's going to be like a Marx Brothers sketch watching them run around stroking their chins wondering how the flood has even dared to happen! I also eagerly await their 'report' as to why it has happened. It'll have more spin than a wind turbine ;)

Praise the Lord indeed. Halleluzah I say. This is a sign. An omen of worse to come.
The spin will be, ' we have experienced unprecedented rain fall levels for this time of year and had it not been for our past investment into Flood Defence's then we'd have all been washed away by the deluge and our bodies recovered near Bristol.'

Great piece of professional and informative journalism there.

I'm not sure how you can have a load that comprises of roads, never mind more than one.

Great journalistic skills indeed, up to the usual 'standard', and at 3.44pm "Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service have been caled to more than 40 flood related incidents across the two counties today".

Much of this localised flooding, and massive inconvenience and cost to residents and businesses, could have been avoided if routine clearing of road gullies had been carried out by Amey. Its noticeable that in the last year it has been abandoned completely, evident by the tufts of grass regularly spaced along the edges of our roads - where once there were free draining gullies there are now gravel filled grass beds. I've reported dozens of these this year but not a single one has been cleared. What is clear in my Council tax demand is that I have paid for highway maintenance, what is not clear is that the whole gulley clearing budget seems to have been diverted in part payment of the Bull redundancy package ...

TwoWheels,You've got it completely right. Everywhere you go in Hereford you can see that the water has nowhere to go because of the poorly maintained drainage system.
Well said kiddo.

What about the people who don't have Twitter? A lot of people would have been relying on this blog for important information before travelling.
