Rochford District Council has forwarded to Essex County Council the top 5 flooding problems in the district and they are as follows.
• Watery Lane
• Hall Road railway bridge
• Spa Road, Hockley railway bridge
• Ditch behind Kingsmead Cottages, Barling Road
• Church Road railway bridge
Few people would, we think, disagree with the list but like us I am sure they know many more spots could quite easily be included.
The top 5 will now qualify for the additional £1m of funding announced by Essex County Council earlier this week.
