Two streets in Westhoughton were flooded after blocked gully drains failed to handle heavy downpours recently.

Large pools of water on Birch Avenue, close to the Southfield Drive roundabout, and at Thornwell formed.

Westhoughton South councillor David Wilkinson has reported the blocked drains to Bolton Council to ask for them to be cleared.
