Maghull & Lydiate have today been suffering from flooding following the torrential rain that has been hitting northern England recently.
The following photos document the scene across the joint communities between 11 am and noon today:-
The worrying issue here is the capacity of the River Alt to take all the flood water from Whinney Brook, Dovers Brook etc. In 2012 it could not take all the water and houses were inundated in Fouracres, Maghull. At the time I took the photos Fouracres was not being flooded. The next few hours will probably be crucial.
With thoughts for all those being flooded or in danger of it.
