Flooding problems are causing misery for a Keighley councillor and his family.

Khalid Choudhry says the kitchen of their home is swamped by up to several inches of water every time it rains.

He has called out Yorkshire Water several times in a bid to solve the problem at the family’s Mannville Road terrace home, but to no avail.

Father-of-three Mr Choudhry, 46, a software engineer and member of Keighley Town Council, has blasted the water company over the situation.

But YW said it had been out six times and after extensive tests identified the problem, which it transpired was not its responsibility to resolve.

A spokesman said: “We appreciate the difficulties the flooding have caused for Mr Choudhry and his family and sympathise, and have advised him of the situation.”
