Mr Larkham said he had been contacted by residents from Ardowen who said the stream running through the estate has burst its banks causing flooding along the cycle/foot path.

“The underpass at Lismore Manor is also currently flooded,” he revealed.

“I am on the ground (wellies included) and have contacted the relevant agencies to have this section of path temporarily closed off until water levels reduce.”
