A couple from Weymouth have had their precious memories destroyed after flood water poured into their garage.

But Tom Bugler says the problem at Holzwickede Court wasn't just caused by the heavy rain but by developers working on a nearby stream.

Three of Tom's neighbours have also been affected.

He says it's not the £5,000 worth of damage that's the issue.


FC Cummings are the developers responsible for the 176 new home build at Preston Downs.

Steve Cummings who's the Company Director admitted the stream diversion they put in place wasn't able to cope with the weather conditions.

Mr Cummings said he was sympathetic to the situation and that Mr Bugler would need to contact his insurers to talk about compensation.
