Mosgiel shops were left to mop up this afternoon after a
heavy downpour of rain caused flooding on Gordon Road.
The mid-afternoon dousing sent shopkeepers scrambling to keep
the water out of their premises with some resorting to using
compost bags from Mitre 10 as makeshift sandbags.
Contractors called to help clear the drains were also kept
busy slowing traffic on the flooded road.
