Clean-up continues after flash flooding hits parts of Swansea

A clean-up operation is continuing in Swansea after flash flooding hit the area late on Saturday night.

A yellow 'be aware' alert for rain had been issued by the Met Office for the area, warning of storms which could produce 20-30mm of rain within an hour.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service says crews were in attendance pumping water and clearing roads.

Residents of Brynmill have expressed their shock at seeing the water lapping at their doorsteps.

I had a massive fright last night, the water was one inch away from flooding our family home. I called 999 and saved at least 10 other houses.
