A Peterborough branch of Aldi has reopened after being hit badly by floods yesterday (July 9).

Saturday, 10th July 2021, 1:57 pm

The branch of Aldi at Peterborough One Retail Park was hit particularly badly. A video sent in to the Peterborough Telegraph showed water flooding into the store from the overflowing car park.

Work continued on beyond the shop’s normal opening time of 8am but at around 11am, the store was able to open its doors again.

The supermarket chain was one of the many businesses hit by flooding when the city was hit by a deluge of rain yesterday evening.
