Numerous flood alerts were out in place across Lancashire on Sunday afternoon (July 25) after heavy rain battered the county.
A healthcare worker, who lives on Lawsons Road in Thornton, said she “missed a second day of work” as a result.
Sue Tamasa told the Blackpool Gazette: “I work in a nursing home 12 hour shifts so I have lost a large amount of money, plus the home is now short staffed.”
The flood warnings were removed on Monday morning, with the weather outlook for the rest of the week looking slightly better.
