Rain, rain, please, please go away...

Banbury United's game against Biggleswade Town was cancelled on Saturday due to a severely flooded pitch.

Banbury United's game against Biggleswade Town was cancelled on Saturday due to a severely flooded pitch.

Banburyshire was again exposed to the elements this week with heavy rainfall meaning roads and even some homes were hit by further floodwater.

Although the region escaped the devastation seen elsewhere in the country, firefighters from Hook Norton attended Round Close Road in Adderbury last Friday when water flooded the road and put some homes at risk.

Lesley Wearing work­ed tirelessly with her husband Brian and daughter Emma to keep water from entering their home.

She said: “It was raining really hard on the Thursday night and I noticed within 30 minutes the water had come up to our front door, so we were really panicking.

“We managed to stop the water from coming inside the house, but I can’t thank the firefighters enough as they were brilliant.”

Banbury United’s Spencer Stadium pitch looked more like a swimming pool on Saturday as the continuous rainfall prevented their game against Biggleswade Town going ahead. Elsewhere, in Cropredy, the Williamscot Road was about 18 inches deep and Barford St Michael’s High Street was closed for three days due to floodwater.
