Parts of Catcliffe have been affected by flooding again

Catcliffe, which was hit by devastating floods in 2007 which left scores of residents homeless, was affected by floodwater again last night.

Catcliffe Flash did breach the nearby road – between Catcliffe and Treeton – and it was blocked off by the police for a time, but is now passable with care.

There was some localised surface water flooding in Catcliffe, marooning residents on some roads, but the majority of homes remained dry.
