Reacting to the news that Pentre has suffered its fourth flood of the year, Rhondda MS Leanne Wood said: “I am outraged and angered that flooding has happened again in Pentre.
“It is heartbreaking for the people in the affected homes that they have to be go through the misery of a flooding once again. It’s totally unacceptable that people have to live like this. It has been very distressing for everyone involved. This evening I have been in contact with officials from Dwr Cymru over this.
“This strengthens Plaid Cymru’s call for an independent public inquiry into the causes of these floods - we must get to the bottom of this reoccurring problem. So far, our demands have been resisted by the authorities but they are supported by thousands of people who have signed our petition.”
