A faulty Scottish Water valve has been blamed for a flood in a Campbeltown property.
Councillor Rory Colville said: ‘Last night I was contacted by a resident of Benmore Street whose house had been flooded.
‘It was possibly due to a rise in water pressure as this seems to have been fluctuating up and down recently.
‘I would like to suggest that should anyone else be experiencing a change in pressure to contact Scottish Water either by phone 0800 0778 778 or online on the link attached https://www.scottishwater.co.uk/contact-us/report-a-problem
A spokesperson from Scottish Water told Councillor Colville: ‘I can confirm that our operational team has been aware of issues in Campbeltown regarding low and high pressures, which we believe was due to a faulty valve.
‘Work will be taking place next week which will include the installation of a new valve which should resolve the issues.’
