Title

Flood victims

Description

"Liberty Way, the entrance to Garveymeade, was a lake on Saturday morning as our photo shows. Here two citizens wade their way through to get to their homes. Since the recent heavy rainfalls, Garveymeade residents, who are brave enough to leave their homes in the mornings, have had to park their cars some distance from their homes and walk home. Some even sleep in the cars for fear of them being stolen. Poor drainage and sewage systems are the cause of the constant flooding."
