Lambeth council deputy leader, Cllr Jackie Meldrum, is encouraging people to visit Herne Hill and support it’s flood hit business.
After a water main burst in the early hours of Wednesday, August 7, water poured into businesses in Herne Hill town centre.
Cllr Meldrum visited the scene of the flooding in Herne Hill on Wednesday morning with Southwark council leader, Cllr Peter John.
Cllr Meldrum said: “Thames Water will help the businesses affected by this flood recover from the incident.
“But while visiting the area I met with the business owners and told them the council is there if they need additional support.
“While most of the flooded businesses are in Southwark, there are several in Lambeth dealing with related issues – mainly flooded basements.
“We are asking locals to help these traders recover by giving them their business once the shops re-open.”
Lambeth council’s street cleaning and traffic teams were on the scene, making sure diversions were working property, and quickly completed work cleaning flood debris from the streets.
Cllr Meldrum said: “Our teams will continue their work to minimise disruption until this issue is completely resolved.”
