Maskey calls for full investigation into south Belfast flooding

9 October, 2009 - by Alex Maskey


Sinn Féin MLA for south Belfast Alex Maskey has called for a full investigation into today’s flooding on the lower Ormeau Road.

Speaking after visiting residents in the area today Mr Maskey said;

“Put quite simply, I do not accept the reasons given to me by the Water Service as to why this flooding took place.

To suggest that there was no advance warning of today’s heavy rainfall simply isn’t good enough; it’s not good enough for me and it’s not good enough for the people who are repeatedly affected by this flooding.

I am calling for a full investigation into today’s events to determine just why the pump system wasn’t properly utilised to save residents from this trauma.” CRÍOCH
