Firefighters in action over Saughall Massie flood
4:43pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
Firefighters helped divert water to drains after a garden became flooded at Saughall Massie.
Officers used polybooms to help divert the water to drains near Garden Hey Road.
Watch manager Dave Balmer said: “There were around six inches of water covering an area measuring around 80 feet by 20 feet.
"We used polybooms, which is a roll that is filled with water or air, to divert the water.
"We filled the polyboom with water and it acted as a damn.
“We would advise that homeowners who have drains around their house make sure they are clear and unblocked.”
An appliance from West Kirby fire station attended the incident. Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service control room has received more than 20 calls concerning flooding since around 2pm today from areas in Wirral, Crosby, St Helens and Liverpool.
