Maldon: Flooding woes and good Samaritans
9:00am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Local News
Cars were left stranded in flood water and some residents saw their homes damaged following Saturday's torrential downpours.
However, there were also reports of people helping out those who had become trapped in their cars.
Victoria Bradford thanked those who came to the aid of her in-laws, whose car slid into a ditch in Goldhanger Road, Maldon, and a couple allowed them into their home for several hours whilst they attempted to arrange recovery.
She said: “Whilst waiting there, two men in a dark Land Rover who were intending to travel to Colchester offered their assistance to numerous cars by towing them out of the flood water to drier ground.
“They then towed my in-laws’ car out of the ditch and up the road where a recovery truck was waiting."
Another driver gave them a lift back to Osea Leisure Park.
