For drivers navigating Long Lane, in Cosford, flood water is probably becoming a familiar sight.

Recent reports to Shropshire Council suggest flooding has been going on close to the David Corfield gym since around October, near RAF Cosford.

But according to the gym's owner, it's been an issue for almost a decade.

Mr Corfield said: "It never really goes away, you can call it a lake. It's impassable. People who walk here can't get here on foot.
