PICTURE GALLERY: Flooding chaos across Midhurst and Petworth

Waiting for Video...

THERE was Christmas misery across the Midhurst and Petworth area after torrential rain and 80 mph winds brought with it the worst flooding in living memory.

Storms on December 23 and 26 left much of the area under several feet of water - with dozens of people rescued from their homes.

Drivers were also badly hit, and many were rescued from their cars by West Sussex fire and rescue crews.

See this week’s Midhurst and Petworth Observer (out January 2) for our full round-up of the floods.
