Lottage Road and the Square in Aldbourne remain closed to traffic today as groundwater continued to cause problems.

Firefighters were in the village on Friday night pumping water from the Square into the Bourne as groundwater continued to rise.

The fire service was first called by a resident in the Square at about 4.20pm as his property was inches away from being flooded.

A crew from Marlborough attended first and were assisted by a crew from Swindon who arrived in Aldbourne at around 6pm.

Wiltshire Council provided 200 sandbags for residents in the area and roads into the Square were closed.

Both crews left at 8.15pm after diverting the water and giving advice to affected residents.
