BUILDING work is being blamed after muddy water flooded gardens in Flockton for a second time.
Jacqueline Clark and her neighbours in Manor House Caravan Park were horrified when their gardens began to fill with water after heavy rain in July.
Mexborough-based Ben Bailey Homes and building contractors Encia sent letters to residents telling them the flooding was due to the removal of top soil from fields behind their homes.
Workmen dug a trench along the fence line in an attempt to prevent further flooding.
But the same thing happened during bad weather earlier this month.
Mrs Clark said: "The water is running straight from the fields.
"It is murky, muddy and has left a real mess in my back yard. I am sick of it.
"Now I am just constantly thinking when is it going to happen again? We were told the trench would sort it out but clearly it has not. The water just seeps through it and collects in my garden.
"I sent a letter to Ben Bailey Homes and they have not even replied to that.
"We all feel like we are being ignored and the company does not care that our homes are being damaged. We may live in static caravans but we still pay Kirklees Council full tax - we are not travellers.
"It is not fair, they are just ignoring us. We have looked after our homes but they don't seem to care."
Workmen have now dug an even bigger trench in an attempt to stop the flooding - but the neighbours are not confident it will keep their gardens dry.
Jon Bailey, sales director of Ben Bailey Homes, promised action would be taken.
"We are not in the business of upsetting people who live near our developments. In fact it is the very last thing we want to do.
"I am going to insist our construction department looks into this problem immediately so we can try to put it right."
