Goldhawk Road has been "severely" flooded according to the Metropolitan Police by a burst water main, with over 20 people having been evacuated as an emergency measure. Thames Water have confirmed that the pipe burst at around 0400 this morning resulting in many houses being inundated with water. It is not clear at the moment whether the water was drinking water or sewage.
As I reported from this meeting about the chronic flooding problems suffered by our Borough at the moment this was really a catastrophe waiting to happen. Now it's happenned. Our thoughts I am sure go out to all those caught up in this.
More to follow, but in the meantime if you have any news please pass it on...
UPDATE 1330 - The road is apparently clear now and water pumped away.
