More than 30 people attended a drop-in session in Oban to voice their concerns about flooding.

Glasgow-based Enviro Centre and Argyll and Bute Council are carrying out a study into the three major flood influences in the town – tides, rivers and drainage – with a view to solving the problem.

The final report, due to be completed in June this year, will be sent to the Scottish Government in the hope of securing funding.

Held at the town’s Rockfield Centre, the drop-in event was the second of its type to be held in the town and the first since severe floods in October last year.

Also present at the event was Paul Hendy, flood recovery officer for the charity Scottish Flood Forum. Anyone with concerns relating to flooding can phone the helpline on 01698 839021.
