RESIDENTS in one Hampshire village are breathing a sigh of relief after water levels starting falling after weeks of torrential rain.

A team of volunteers was put together by the parish council after Hazeley Road, Twyford, had to be closed because of water flowing down the street.

Volunteer flood coordinator Angela Forder-Stent said: “The Hazeley Road has been opened fully following a dramatic lowering of the water levels overnight. There are still significant amounts of water flowing down the valley and the springs nearer the village are still adding large amounts of water to the flow. We hope the crisis is over, although we expect the Bourne to flow for some significant time at a reduced rate. However the levels might rise again and should that happen we have all the equipment on standby and can spring into action.”
