SZ0891 : Bournemouth: Town Hall Extension car park underwater

Bournemouth: Town Hall Extension car park underwater
Bournemouth: Town Hall Extension car park underwater
Looking along the lowest floor of the Town Hall Extension Car Park, which is reserved for staff during office hours and public at evenings and weekends.

Torrential rain this morning brought much flooding to Bournemouth town centre and Braidley Road was particularly badly hit - it was soon under 18 inches of water. It stands to reason that if Braidley Road was underwater, then so was this car park to the same level, because it is linked directly and on the same level.

Several staff who were parked on this level came down (once they could actually reach their cars) to find that their vehicles were in a bit of a state, inside as well as out.

A couple of hours have gone by now and the water has receded drastically, now only four or five inches deep.
