Our Turney and Burbage thoughts are with our friends, traders and residents in Herne Hill affected by a flood from the early hours of Wednesday 7th August 2013.   There was extensive flooding close to the junction of Half Moon Lane and Stradella Road caused by a burst water main.

The incident took place at around 5am and the LFB, Police, the council and highways officers were quickly on the scene.
