‘SOME of the worst flooding in a decade’ left fields in Purbrook underwater.
Torrential rain yesterday hit the south coast, and caused flooding to fields across the Purbrook area and to the north of Portsdown Hill.
Mick Fellows, whose partner looks after a horse in Purbrook, was forced to contend with the aftermath to feed the animal.
The 53-year-old said: ‘It was terrible over there. It was probably the second worst bit of flooding I have seen in the past 10 years. It was impassable at points.’
Describing the scene, Mr Fellows added: ‘The fields there were underwater. It was like a river was running through them.’
