A STREAM came dangerously close to inundating properties in Portrush when a brand new culvert became blocked with flood debris.

The incident occurred during heavy rain last Sunday (November 15) in the Ballywillan Road area of the town.

Householder, Tim Nelson said he had to remove two barrow loads of leaves and branched from the culvert grille before the water subsided.

In the meantime, the level had risen to within inches of flooding his garden.
