FIREFIGHTERS from Malpas assisted with flooding at properties in the village on Wednesday evening.

Shortly before 8.30pm fire crews from Malpas and Crew were dispatched to reports of flooding a house on Springfield Avenue, Malpas.

On arrival they found that two neighbouring addresses had been hit by flash flooding which had affected the electrics.

Crews isolated the gas and electrics within the building and ensured that the occupants were taken to a safe location.

The flood water subsequently receded.

Crews were in attendance at the scene for around one hour.
