Heavy rain sparks flood fears
HEAVY rain and strong winds could lead to flooding over the Christmas period, warns The Environment Agency.
The rainy weather is expected to continue over the next few days and flood warnings have been issued to residents and business owners at risk.
Stephen Marks for the Environment Agency said: “We are working to minimise any possible risk of flooding and warning residents to take action now and reduce the risks and impacts.”
“Now is a good time for anyone who lives in an area vulnerable to flooding to think about the precautions they can take to protect their properties, especially if they are intending to leave their homes during the Christmas break.”
Business owners in Burnham however have said the bad weather hasn't affected sales.
Kathy Julian, owner of Julians on High Street in Burnham, said: “I'm not sure it's having any effect. I think people shop for Christmas gifts whatever the weather.”
