I’VE never seen Wigan so awash!

Of course the usual suspects succumbed to flooding again such as Scot Lane under the railway bridge and that Asda roundabout, but they were much worse than usual and there were plenty more water hazards to ensure road and rail gridlock.

Wigan’s roads seize up at the best of times and its infrastructure frailties were exposed for all to see and experience this week.

But there have been some heart-warming stories of gallantry emerged from the weather woes too, not least those kind gents who rescued a disabled pensioner whose car conked out on the aforementioned Asda roundabout.

Here’s hoping for a drier spell!
