HOMES in Malmesbury were inundated with water overnight when torrential rain caused flooding in parts of the town.

Roads and properties in the St John’s Bridge area were affected after the river burst its banks and Malmesbury Victoria Football Club’s pitch was turned into a huge lake.

Manager Wayne Kibble told the Gazette: “We have been lucky with water not going into the club house this time. We will have to see what damage it’s done to the pitch once it’s fully drained.”

Pallets of building materials could be seen sitting in the water at the Buildbase depot in Park Road and on the other side of the town the recreation ground was also under water.
