Grant Shapps and Howlands Conservative borough council candidate Steve McNamara recently met up with DIY SOS mainstay Billy Byrne to discuss the serious flooding issues in Wellcroft Close, WGC.
Despite having reported the issue to the council on many different occasions, Billy and his neighbours often find their road overwhelmed by floodwater.
Last week Grant and Steve met with Billy and his neighbours to hear about the problem, and discuss what can be done to fix it.
Billy said: "I was really happy to meet with Grant and Steve about the flooding on my road. It's an extremely dangerous situation that can occur at any time of day or night, and the residents are left to pick up the pieces each time it happens.
"I'm pleased that finally, after years of reporting this issue to the council to no avail, someone is listening and taking the issue seriously."
Grant and Steve are now in the process of pushing the county council to carry out the work necessary to assess and fix the cause of the flooding, which could be structural or possibly even caused by nearby tree roots.
