INVESTIGATIONS are under way after an area of a town was repeatedly affected by flash flooding.

The area of Prudhoe near to the railway station flooded again last week after heavy rain. The area experienced the same fate just a few weeks previously.

A Northumberland County Council spokeswoman said: “There has been some flooding in this area during recent heavy rain storms.

“As with any location where such issues occur, we are carrying out investigations and assessing what options there might be to mitigate against such impacts in the future.”
