The Labour Party’s local team in Besses has been making efforts to ensure that the recent torrential rain and flooding does not cause too much disruption to the lives of residents.

 

Local campaigner Mary Whitby visited the park between Thatch Leach Lane and Albert Road where water has completely covered the path running across it.

 

Mary said ‘I am really concerned as the water was  almost 6 inches deep and covered an area of over 40ft – 50ft.  This renders the path unusable especially for the elderly or anyone with a buggy or smaller children. ‘

 

The issue has been reported by Besses Councillor Elizabeth FitzGerald and Bury Council are now looking at the drainage issues in the area.
