YOU have to have sympathy for anyone who has been a victim of the floods over the last few weeks.

Residents at flats in Conifer Gardens, Christchurch, who felt they were living in ‘the land that time forgot’, were advised to leave their flood-threatened premises by police late on Sunday night.

Many others have also been affected by the extreme weather.

All they want is for things to return to normal.

Hopefully, conditions will be picking up over the next few days and they will get their wish.
