Commenting on the flooding of houses south of Alexandra Park following a burst water main, Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat MP for Hornsey and Wood Green said,
“The resilience shown by local people has been incredible. Everybody has rallied round to help their friends and neighbours. We are a strong community and that was proven today.
“I was with the police and fire brigade talking to local residents in the first few hours and I have to say I was impressed with the speed of their response.
“I will now be pressing Thames Water to find out how this happened and asking them to ensure it won’t happen again.”
