PARTS of Fareham were hit by flooding as a high spring tide left some areas covered in water up to a foot deep.

Lower Quay Road and Wallington were both affected on Tuesday.

Dion O’Brien, 35, works at Maritime Journal in Lower Quay. He said: ‘We almost had to get a canoe to get into town. We were literally flooded in.’

Sally Littlefield, 56, from Wallington, rushed home when she heard about the flooding. She said: ‘It was pretty bad, up to a foot deep on the pavement, but we were very lucky.’

Nick Young, 50, from Gosport, was walking home when he saw the high tide. He said: ‘It was the highest I’ve seen. I’ve lived here since 1999 and I’ve never seen it like that.’
