Flooding at Eastbourne flats

Flooding affected a block of flats in Eastbourne early this morning (Saturday).

Fire crews were called to Monk Sherborne House in Granville Road after receiving reports that water had flooded the ground floor.

The electricity supply was turned off and engineers from UK Power Networks attended to check the supply before it was switched back on.

Crews arrived on scene just after 5.15am today and stood down around half an hour later.
