A LINTHWAITE woman alerted emergency services after flooding near Manchester Road.
Michelle Short called the 101 police line with concerns of high water levels near Linfit Fold.
She said: “The road near Linfit Fold is dipping under the water and in places the tarmac has started to lift.
“Water is coming out of the cracks in the road.
“Cars have been aquaplaning across Manchester Road which is very dangerous.
“The police said they have had several reports about this area and they have closed a small part of it.
“There are houses next to the bottom of Linfit Fold on Manchester Road that have water pouring out of every hole or crack.
“I have seen people stripping their carpet and taking cupboards out that have been damaged.
“My sister who lives around here, said the man opposite opened his front door and water poured out as it was higher than the frame.”
