Just as the Shanklin Main Carnival drew to a close yesterday evening (Wednesday), Shanklin Fire Station were alerted to a flooded flat in the town.
One appliance, which led the carnival parade, was sent to Avenue Road after a flat became flooded by water seeping through from an unoccupied upstairs property.
The road was temporarily closed by HSS Hire on the request of the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service, however reopened less than 60 minutes later.
