If like me you were caught up in the closure of the Birchfield Road due to flooding last night or were made late to work or for an appointment today you are probably really annoyed today.
The road off the Walsall road were a major problem today and traffic built up on a number of roads in the Oscott area as a result.
However contrary to rumours the floods were not caused by blocked drains due to leaves or poor road sweeping.
The problem was I have been informed a faulty electric water removal pump.
Engineers are now doing all they can to rectify the problem
