Garden swamped by flooding

AN angry householder was left “devastated” after watching her garden became swamped with raw sewage.

Jackie Scott and her partner Davey Morton were just two of the people affected by the recent extensive flooding in Taig Road, in Kirkintilloch’s Waterside.

The problem was caused by a combination of heavy rain and drains being blocked by building debris from a nearby building site.

Jackie told the Herald: “I am absolutely devastated. We spend so much time in the garden as a family and now it’s ruined.

“You spend so much money and time making it look nice and then something like this happens - you wonder why you bother.”
