FLOODING will be on the agenda at a public meeting organised by an Isle of Wight councillor tonight (Tuesday).

The meeting, at the Simeon Arms in Ryde at 5pm, has been organised by Ryde member Cllr Wayne Whittle.

"There are some properties in the Strand that have flooded four times since Christmas eve.

"It has been really bad for a lot of people. Some are finding it tough to get insurance now," said Cllr Whittle.

Representatives from the Isle of Wight Council, the fire and rescue service, Southern Water, Environment Agency and Island Roads are due to attend.
