A SOMERSET town flooded again this weekend - less than a month after the last floods.

As the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms, Chard residents were given sandbags in preparation.

The town's Guildhall was opened and councillors helped to hand out more than 400 sandbags.

"It seems to me everyone is trying to pass off the problem, I have contacted the leader of Somerset County Council and asked for a meeting to get this issue resolved.

"I feel that we need to unblock all of the drains and survey the whole system and make any repairs as a matter of urgency and then figure out after who owns which pieces of infrastructure after, the important thing is to make sure residents and business are not flooded again.”

Somerset County Council has been contacted for comment.
