The following businesses are currently open:

Priory Meadow closed on Monday morning (January 16). Resident Sarah Stewart, who was on the scene on Monday as she left the gym, described seeing ‘a large flooded area with water just pouring out of Priory Meadow’.
She said: “I’ve never seen anything like it! It was coming out so fast.”
Crews left the scene yesterday afternoon, after spending the day pumping water from affected shops and premises at Priory Meadow, and said the scene ‘has now been handed back to local centre management’.
While the floods have significantly reduced, it is still unclear when the remainder of the shops will reopen.
