GALLERY: Heavy rain continues to batter the city

More heavy rainfall has seen a number of roads closed and green spaces plunged under water as the bad weather continues.

Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue received more than 70 calls this morning from across the Milton Keynes area, including Stoke Goldington. They were mainly from residents concerned about rising flood water in or near their homes.

One disgruntled resident spoke of his frustration at council work being undertaken on a footpath on the A509 running alongside Emberton Country Park despite there being no alternative for pedestrians between Emberton and Oney because of the flooded park.

He said: “Other alternative paths are too muddy except for those with appropriate footware, and the fields through which they would have to make there way are also muddy and extremely wet.

“The council does not seem to be aware to be aware that a number of eldery people, including those using mobility scooters, use this route on a daily basis and may well now be denied the means of making their way between Emberton and Olney for at least a week.

“One has to question the wisdom of those who authorised the work to be carried out a time when there is no viable alternative route between Emberton and Olney.”
