Mobile Home Park Evacuated

The continued heavy rainfall led to residents at a Dorset mobile home park being evacuated earlier this week due to a high risk of flooding. In total residents at about 90 homes at Iford Home Park in Bournemouth were asked to leave the site as a precautionary measure with Bournemouth Borough Council arranging suitable alternative accommodation for residents.

A statement released from the Environment Agency at the time said, "Water levels in the lower Stour at Iford Bridge Home Park are rising and expected to peak at Iford this evening. River levels in this area can be expected to remain high until tomorrow morning. No further rainfall is forecast today although isolated heavy showers can be expected."

In the end, although river levels did raise significantly from 6pm on Monday evening, the mobile home park at Iford did not see the expected deluge of water.
