Drains issue resolved

A CHRONIC flooding problem in Broughty Ferry was solved by the torrential rain last week.

Fintry Place has been beset by problem flooding for some time, and the heavy rain on Wednesday quickly swamped the area.

Ferry councillor Derek Scott said: “I’ve been pursuing flooding issues at that location for a number of months now.”

When Tayside Contracts dug up the drains, they unearthed the cause of months of problems. They discovered that the drains were all blocked up with cement.

Councillor Scott said: “Obviously a contractor working nearby has just tipped the liquid cement down a drain, and of course it has hardened and blocked it.”
