Storms create lake in Upper Street.

Today’s heavy storms have turned part of Upper Street into a lake with Eyhorne Street becoming awash with water and the bourne under Eyhorne Street coming within inches of overflowing. KCC Highways have been advised of the lake at the end of Church Approach. 

The bad weather also seems to have affected traffic through the village with jams in the evening rush hour stretching in both directions almost  mile from Hollingbourne Corner to Hollingbourne CP School. A number of frustrated drivers became involved in altercations with other drivers in the single track section of the B2163/C603 through the Eyhorne Street Conservation Area.
