FLOODING caused more misery in West Fife on Saturday evening after heavy downpours resulted in a repeat of problems experienced last week.

In Rosyth, Harley Street and Hilton Road were badly affected again along with Ferrytoll Road and the A985.

One car had to be abandoned in the middle of Hilton Road because of the conditions.

Areas of Inverkeithing including Preston Crescent were also badly hit.

Craigluscar Road in Dunfermline was closed on Saturday evening between the A907 Carnock Road junction and the D10 Drumtuthill Road junction because of flooding while the Valleyfield Community Centre remains shut because of a leaking roof.

The weather also caused problems on the trains with delays on Saturday night after a five miles per hour restriction was put in place because of flooding at Inverkeithing.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said they were alerted to a number of incidents in Rosyth on Saturday.

“One fire appliance was mobilised to Hudson Road at 8.12pm, where firefighters diverted flowing water that was affecting nine properties," he added.

“One fire appliances was also mobilised to Park Road at 10.09pm, where a large area of flood water had developed due to a burst bank at a nearby burn.

“Crews assisted the local community and ensured residents were safe.

“We were also mobilised to Hilton Road following reports that a car had become stranded in flood water and to reports of flowing water affecting properties on Grampian Road but crews were ultimately not required with either incident.”
