THIS was the sight greeting residents in the Comeytrowe Lane area of Taunton following yesterday's (Tuesday) heavy rain.

There are fears incidents of flooding could get even worse once the nearby Orchard Grove housing development is completed.

Lynne Parker posted on Facebook: "Be careful Comeytrowe Lane area,this is sadly going to get even worse with the huge development there."

And her neighbour Sarah Harris said: "We had to get the developers to come and build soil barriers with a digger before we went under!"
