MIDHURST firefighters were called to a house in Kingley Vale in the early hours of Tuesday morning after reports of flooding.

They received the alarm just after 5am and found a pipe had burst in the utility room of a home off the A286.

Station manager Nigel Gamblen said: “Water had flooded through the utility room and affected the ground floor, but luckily there was not a great deal of damage.”

Firefighters pumped out the water and helped the owner with the salvage operation.
