Flash floods have caused a drain to silt up under the District and Piccadilly line bridges in Chiswick .

Following downpours on Monday (October 17), photos emerged from concerned local resident Mike Abbott that Fishers Lane had suffered from flooding under the railway bridges between Chiswick Park and Turnham Green stations.

Mr Abbott told getwestlondon the photographs were taken on Monday afternoon after heavy rain.

He added: "The flooding was still there 24 hours later, only more so (after more rain)​.

"There is a drain beneath the water and it's clearly silted up with leaves. Yesterday, the flooded water had also attracted litter."

Water had built up in the area which was already closed off due to gas main repair works by National Grid.

However the perimeter which comes under Ealing Council was due to have emergency works carried out last night (Tuesday, October 18) to clear the blocked gullies.

A spokeswoman for Ealing Council said: “Work was carried out last tonight in Fishers Lane to clear blocked gullies.

“The council had already arranged to do this work later in the week while the road is closed for gas works and was waiting for safe access by National Grid contractors.

“However, the work has been brought forward to deal with the results of last night’s flash flood.”

Last month, torrential rain caused homes in Harrow to be flooded as forecasts came true putting Uxbridge roads under water.
