Water levels in the area are receding, according to one Bablockhythe resident yesterday.

Andrew Neil, 70, of Thameside Court, said that while flood water remained at both ends of the caravan park the situation was improving.

Father-of-two Mr Neil said: “Nobody who has left in the last few days has come back yet and there are only a few of us left here.

“But the water is slowly disappearing. The area outside my place is completely clear.”
