A business owner has hit out over nightmare flooding at Alexandria’s Lomond Industrial Estate which he says is forcing customers away and putting children at risk.Paul Morris, 44, who owns Loch Lomond Marine Sales at Strone Road, is calling on West Dunbartonshire Council to fix the problem.The water is so deep, Paul has to pick up customers unable to reach the premises in his 4x4 – and he can even launch his own boats on the floodwater.He said: “This happens every year.

I have had customers who have turned up to pick up parts or look at boats, and they just couldn’t get through. They are turning round and disappearing off.

I am losing business because of it.“With other customers, I am having to drive through in my 4x4 to get them across the water.“I am not having that footfall of people who turn up to buy stuff.“I have raised it with the council and I had a call back where they said they would have someone come out the following day, but no one showed up.

The other businesses here complain about it every year and nothing ever gets done. It is like it is too much work for them. They aren’t interested.
