Fears of flooding

Have your say

WORRIED householders called fpr help after rainwater began to lap in through their doors.

A couple in their 60s asked for support from firefighters after their detached house in Severn Close, Peterlee, began to flood when water came in through their conservatory.

The crew used a pump and booms to divert water away from the home, as well as neighbouring properties, at 9.30pm on Wednesday.

A Sunderland crew was called to a similar incident in Fellview Crescent, Ford Estate, after water began to seep under the front door of a house.
