Storm Dennis floods Ludlow homes and businesses

Temeside and Lower Corve Street are flooded. Other areas also. The water has rushed in through doors, flooded basements and pushed sewerage out of toilets. It is not yet known how many houses are flooded but it must be around 20. Water is lapping at the doors and back gates of many other properties. This is almost the worst flood since July 2007. Then water reached a height of 5.22m on the Teme. Today, the river seems to have peaked at 5.20m. But no one threatened with river water pouring into their home cares about whether this is a record flood or not.
