Treorchy resident Kelly Powell describes flash flood

Up to 30 homes in Treorchy have been evacuated after flash flooding when a pumping station failed during heavy rainfall on Saturday night.

Dwr Cymru Welsh Water said the problem had been fixed, and said it was "extremely sorry" to those affected.

An emergency centre was set up at Rhondda leisure centre by Rhondda Cynon Taf council.

Resident Kelly Powell describes how flood water came in through the downstairs of her home from two directions; while Steve Wilson of Welsh Water explains what the company was doing to help people affected.
