Heavy rain causes flooding around Bramhall

12 Jun 2016

Heavy rain causes flooding around Bramhall. Incredible footage has been shown all over social media of the floods that hit Bramhall on the evening of Saturday 11 June 2016

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue services were called out to Bramhall Green roundabout where the Ladybrook and Mickerbrook River burst it’s banks. Many people were evacuated from their houses and one lady was rescued from her home in a wheelie bin. Click here for the amazing footage.

Businesses, Nisa and Brian Sharples funeral directors were hugely affected and a number of homes on Bridge Lane have been flood damaged. Also the Guide Hut’s floor behind Nisa has been completely ruined, sadly they weren’t insured for flooding.

It is absolutely soul destroying when you see the awful damage inside the houses.
