Local MP Caroline Dinenage yesterday chaired a meeting to discuss the ongoing problem of flooding at Newton Close, Morgan Drive and Discovery Close in Stubbington.

Caroline called the meeting of all agencies involved in order to seek a solution to the problems which have plagued residents for over a year. Fareham Borough Council, Hampshire County Council, the Environment Agency and Southern Water were all represented at the meeting.

Caroline commented:

"Flooding is hugely distressing for all those affected which is why I was so keen to bring the relevant agencies together in one room to discuss what can be done to halt the existing problem. I hope that yesterday's meeting will put us on the path to finding a swift and realistic solution."
