West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has asked the Borough Council to improve drainage at the Cemetery on Liverpool Road, Skelmersdale after hearing from a constituent who was upset to find on a number of occasions her daughters plot was partially under water.
Rosie Cooper MP commented:
“Visiting the grave of a loved one is already a very difficult thing for people to do, so they should not have to also contend with flooded paths and finding the plot is under water.
“My constituent told me that she was upset to find more than once that her daughters plot was surrounded by water and that flowers or memorabilia she had left had become damaged.
“I have asked if the Council can take action to assist Saint Richards Church in preventing the cemetery from flooding. Now more than ever it is important that people can safely and comfortably mourn those that have passed away.”
