Homes in Edithmead surrounded by flood water after heavy rainfall

Heavy rain left several homes in Edithmead, on the outskirts of Burnham-On-Sea, surrounded by flood water on Tuesday morning (May 1st).

Several days of rainfall caused flooding for several residents in Stoddens Lane, as pictured here, with the standing water being up to a foot deep.

Resident Grace Toomer, who owns the home pictured above, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I've lived here since 1973 and have never seen so much water surrounding the house before."

"This week's rainfall has been especially heavy and has left water up to a foot deep in parts. I have been having to pull on my wellingtons to go out, but am just relieved it hasn't come inside. I am continuing to keep a close eye on the weather."

The Met Office says Wednesday (May 2nd) should be dry and sunny in the Burnham area, while outbreaks of rain will return on Thursday, possibly heavy at times.
