Floods hit garden offices

The latest round of flooding has been bad enough for those who live in their homes, but it's been arguably that bit worse for those who work in them too, especially those who have garden offices. Tarik Al Rasheed in The Malvern Gazette reports on Chris Wreghitt's flooded home office (pictured): Chris runs a bicycle and fitness export agency Global Opportunities from his home and although he did have time to save his computer from his garden office, he has lost plenty of other vital information.
"The water came over like a tsunami, you could hear the noise and see it coming closer towards you," he said. "We got the computer out but everything left in there is just gone, and while I should be able to get the business functional within a week it's a little disruptive." Together with wife Wendy and children Sam, Katie and Jack, Mr Wreghitt had tried to defend their house using home-made sandbags of bin liners filled with soil.
