Creeksea developments cause trouble for locals

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Creeksea resident, Chris Fugeman, with an overflowing ditch Creeksea resident, Chris Fugeman, with an overflowing ditch

Lorries are blocking roads, causing ditches to flood and making lanes impassable in Creeksea, creating difficulties for residents. 

Chris Fugeman, 45, lives with his wife Samantha, 38, and their two-year-old son on Ferry Road and are particularly badly affected. 

He said: "When the ditches fill with water now, the water runs out and floods under the bridge at the end of the road, we sometimes can't get out."

Essex County Council has stated that an Essex Highways Inspector will be carrying out an investigation on the area.
