Islanders are being advised to "maintain their waterways" to reduce flooding in Guernsey, in the wake of Storm Angus.

Following the record-breaking gusts in the island over the weekend, there is a build up of debris in and around water courses.

At this time of year vegetation and siltation of our hundreds of waterways can be prolific, resulting in low flows or even blockage. If we suddenly experience a heavy downpour and the rainwater is unable to drain away, there could be serious flooding.

It is therefore really important that landowners maintain their watercourses to reduce the risk of flooding to the surrounding areas and neighbouring properties.

– Mark Brockway, Assistant Traffic Services Officer, States of Guernsey
