TORRENTIAL rain failed to force anyone out of their homes during the recent freak weather.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council has confirmed to the News, that no residents were made homeless as a result of the floods.
The authority’s street cleansing teams visited all areas of the borough where reports of flooding had been received following Thursday's downpours of rain.
The teams are happy to report that no significant problems were identified.
“Unlike in other parts of the country, the council can confirm that nobody from the borough was made homeless as a result of the flash flooding,” said a spokesman for the authority.
“Officers from the Housing department visited all locations where tenants and residents had reported problems to offer advice, help and to identify any vulnerable people who may have required further assistance.
“However, in all areas, residents were comfortable and did not require assistance.”
The Town Centre Management teams in Nuneaton and Bedworth worked overnight and throughout Friday morning to assist shops and businesses which had been affected by flooding.
“All responded very well and both town centres are today open for business as usual,” added the spokesman.
Of the stores which were forced to close in Bedworth town centre on Thursday, only three remained closed on Friday, New Look, Specsavers and Myton Hospice, and the council is working with each store to ensure they open as soon as possible.
There had been some minor block paving damage in the town centres which has been reported to Warwickshire County Council as the Highways Authority.
The county council has also been made aware of gullies and drains which became blocked.
“These appeared to be blocked as a result of the sheer volume of rain as opposed to any damage to the systems,” added the spokesman.
