Serious flooding hits the Borders

Scores of homes have been flooded in North Somerset following heavy rain, which also caused a landslip.

The worst affected town was Nailsea, where emergency services received about 80 calls for assistance.

Fire crews spent the night pumping out the homes in an operation that lasted for more than six hours.

Crews also worked with specialist rescue teams at a landslip in Portbury, near Bristol, to ensure that no-one had been trapped underneath.

"Very fortunately, after extensive searching the area was declared clear," an Avon Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said.

He said that heavy rain and run-off from surrounding fields had brought down soil, rocks and debris including fallen trees in Failand Lane, Portbury, at about 20:30 BST on Saturday.

A search-and-rescue 4X4 vehicle was used to clear debris to make the lane passable, with help from a local farmer and his tractor.

"One family that were trapped in their property by the slides were able to get access to and from the lane," the fire service spokesman said.

Meanwhile, emergency services are dealing with serious flooding in the Scottish Borders.

Jedburgh has been badly hit after the local river was said to have burst its banks, resulting in flooding on the town's High Street.

At the risk of sounding like a nutty conspiracy theorist, I think it's evidence of geo-engineering.

Having had my house flooded 3 times in the last 12 years I actually don't believe in climate change.

If anything we are going into a mini ice age (nothing to do with "man" at all. The main reason for floods is our changing of river courses & building on flood plains.

That sounds sensible, gillyspot. I also read recently that in spite of info from the 'greenies,' to the contrary, polar bears numbers have increased dramatically.

Also building housing estates on what used to be 'water meadows'. Paving over front and back gardens doesn't help with the run-off either. That would also come under geo-engineering?
Climate change is normal and imo next to nothing to do with human interference.
The little ice age in mediaeval times, the atlantic climate from 5000 bc to about 2000 bc when grapes would grow in Scandinavia and so on. Climate changes whether we're there or not.

I agree tigger. Climate changes in cycles.

A lot of the gardens in my area are being paved over. So many of them are now almost totally block paved.
