Flash flooding hits Littlehampton and Bognor after heavy rain

First published in News

Heavy rain caused flash flooding to hit homes yesterday.

Firefighters were called to six homes in Littlehampton and several in Bognor at about 9am on Saturday where basements had been submerged under water.

The flooding in Littlehampton was near South Terrace, where dozens of properties had to be evacuated last summer when the town saw 4ft deep flood water.

Construction of a £12m tidal defence wall in Littlehampton is due to begin at the end of the year.

Was the flooding in Littlehampton due to the heavy rain or to tidal water? If the former what is the relevance of the reported tidal defence wall?
