On Saturday May 28th 2016 there was a huge storm and a flash flood which caused much disruption including the closure of Rottingdean High Street. We put out a request that afternoon for people to send us any photos we could share onto TSZ. Laura Rusbridge duly obliged with a picture of a local grocer in Rottingdean wading through the flooded high street. The image was shared over 600 times on our Facebook page alone! It didn’t take long for it to be noticed by both BBC Sussex and ITV News who featured it on their websites respectively.
A big thank you goes out to Laura Rusbridge. Please do keep sending us your great photos of our area, you never know where they could end up via The Saltdean Zone!
