Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Flooding Report - By Sa­man­tha Wil­liams

saw­illiams@thek­m­ Per­sis­tent bad weather across the county cre­ated more flood­ing in Ash­ford over the weekend.

Paths, fields and car parks across the bor­ough re­sem­bled out­door swim­ming pools af­ter the strong wind and rain hit again last Fri­day.

Fields in Kingsnorth and along Ken­ning­ton Road were badly af­fected, and parts of the Stour Cen­tre and the Gal­lagher Re­tail Park’s car parks were cor­doned off due to bad flood­ing.

Pitches at Ash­ford Rugby Club were also un­der wa­ter and the pond at Lit­tle Bur­ton re­sem­bled more of a lake with wa­ter lap­ping over the pub­lic foot­path.

On the coast, Folke­stone was bat­tered by fe­ro­cious winds, with waves crash­ing onto the prom­e­nade at Sunny Sands beach.
