Hereford Futures flood defences defeated by weed
10:00am Thursday 27th September 2012 in News
HEREFORD Futures has this week defended its Flood Alleviation Scheme, despite nearly a month’s rainfall flooding the city’s Merton Meadow car park.
Around 80 per cent of the car park was swamped by the deluge early on Monday morning that brought chaos to the county.
But Hereford Futures has told the Hereford Times that the flooding was not as a result of the £4 million protection scheme that it has backed, but was caused instead by a vegetation blockage in the watercourse.
